Managing The Pain Following A Hip Replacement
#1
Is anybody here who got an artificial hip replacement?
#2
I have never had hip replacement surgery but my nan has had a hip replacement. She is 65 years old and she struggled with the pain post-surgery. It took her 6 months to recover and she still feels mild pain to this day.

Are you having a hip replacement?

My dad had his artificial hip replacement and he is suffering from pain. I was just asking how other people handle this kind of situation.

My nan had to take strong pain killers in the first few months, there was no alternative. She now copes without the painkillers as the pain is mild. I have also got her on an anti-inflammatory whole food diet and she says she feels better eating this way. She used to eat lots of processed food and I think this makes matters worse.

What kind of artificial hip replacement does your nan had took?

No hip replacement, but I had double knee replacement. I have a friend who has had a hip replacement, it has been years since she had it done. As far as I know, she does not have any problem with it, thankfully.

A double knee replacement, wow! What caused you to need a double knee replacement and how long did it take to recover? I imagine knee replacement surgery is worse than hip replacement. How do you manage now? Can you exercise?

I hope the individual who had the double knee replacement was subjected to having both knees done at the same time. If they were, I have to hand it them for getting through that. I have an aunt who had to have both knees replaced, but it was done one at time with the worse one being done first. As for a hip replacement my father had one done and the recovery from one is pretty much standard of most surgeries about six to eight weeks. He didn't seem to have any problem with it after this recovery time.

Hi Shaun and pafjlh, sorry to answer so late, I just saw your questions. I fell down a stair on one knee, injuring my back, knee and wrist. Both knees wore out over time, requiring both to need replacing. I did not want to go through it twice. Pain is pain. My doctor had to clear me. It was excruciating, but I was walking in about three weeks, with rehab. So far, so good.
