Hip replacement surgery is largely a very safe procedure, with risks, such as the possibility that the device will loosen and fail, coming long after the surgery.  However, there is one common short-term side effect of surgery that people should be aware of: blood clots.
Blood clots form when platelets and plasma stick together and form a solid mass. Clotting is a natural reaction to injury; for instance, when a person is cut, blood clots form in the area of the cut, preventing the person from bleeding too much.  Scabs are also a type of clot on the outside of the body. However, when a clot ends up in the wrong place , it can be dangerous. One form of clotting that is common after surgery is deep vein thrombosis, clots in the veins of the arms, legs and pelvis. When a clot becomes wedged in a body part, blood can pool up behind it, causing pain and swelling.  The clots can also travel to the brain, lungs or heart, cutting off blood supply to these key organs.                                                                                                   
Why does surgery result in blood clots? The reason lies in how long surgery patients spend lying immobile.  Usually people move around continually, causing their to blood flow and anticoagulant parts of the blood be distributed throughout the body. Even during sleep people move around somewhat, but people during and after surgery are relatively motionless.             
There are some additional risk factors for clotting, including smoking and a history of clots.  If you are undergoing surgery, be sure to tell your doctor about your medical history so they can take precautions; for instance, they may use an ultrasound scan to look for clots.  Doctors may prescribe the blood-thinning drugs warfarin and heparin.  They may also tell you to take aspirin for its blood-thinning capacity, and to wear compression stockings.
After the surgery, it is important to start moving around as soon as your doctor tells you it is safe to do so.                                                                                                                                                    
Symptoms of a clot can include pain or a cramping feeling in the extremities, itching or numbness, a rash or the skin changing color. If you experience these symptoms you must get treatment immediately; a pulmonary embolism, in which clots break off and get into the heart area, can be fatal.
