Well, it's mid-August and it's about time to update.
May 9th, 2022 I had right leg hip replacement. Could not be happier since surgery.
Get a surgeon that does a lot of hip replacements, you don't want one that does 5 per year. You want one that does 15-20 per week, you want the doctor on the cutting edge of technology and abilities.
If your retired and concerned about Medicare and your supplemental insurance, my surgery cost & 94K and I paid under $500.00 out of pocket. Consult with your insurance to be sure!!
Surgery went so easy and relatively pain free, I was actually quite surprised by that, I had expected a good deal more pain than I had. I think I was comparing the hip with the knee replacement from 2007. This was by far much kinder!
Things I learned from this replacement, do what the doctor says don't be foolish, that your time getting better. There should be no rush on your part, yah I know you want to go back to work but, going back when your body is not ready is nuts. For the hip I was doing rehab 2 twice per week, I'm retired these days and I could do that, for those working the job you should probably do 3 times per week.
Pay attention to what your body is say to you, don't overdo it.
