I am 37 years old and am undergoing a total hip replacement in jut a few weeks. I think I have done all the prep work possible.....can anyone who has gone through this maybe share some things to expect or do to help with the post op period? Thank you.

Hi Randi1,

I hope you can get some feedback from someone who has gone through a hip replacement but I can tell you that correct positioning post-surgery and Physical Therapy as soon as possible after the surgery are very, very important!

Here is some more info on what you should expect before, during, and after: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hip-replacement/MY00235/DSECTION=what-you-can-expect

And some great guidelines to follow after the surgery:


I hope this helps a little!
