Total Hip Replacement
I will be getting a new hip in June and was wondering if any of you have had this done. I don't see any problems with having a pacemaker but just want to know how recovery is. I am 54 years old and it is due to an injury with a torn ligament many years ago which has now caught up with me - I guess I didn't run fast enough. LOL. My health is otherwise great and I don't have to take any prescription medicine. I am one of the lucky ones where the pacemaker does what it's supposed to do and that's it.
I am planning on going back to work again after 4 weeks out of the hospital, is that a reasonable time to recover?
Anything to watch out for besides the knife coming at me?
Any good advise?
