The trade-off for the patients is that they will likely have a significant decrease in hip pain and disability. Learn about the important hip precautions after hip replacement surgery.

A friend of mine actually just completed his third hip surgery for his severe arthritis. He has been having a bit of trouble adjusting since his surgery. He still experiences pain, not necessarily from the arthritis, but from the surgery. It causes a little bit of a disruptance in his sleep schedule. However, he is able to <a href=”http://www.arthritistoday.org/where-it-hurts/hip-pain/treatment/hip-pain-treatment-medication.php”>meliorate his hip pain through exercise and medications</a> that seem to help quite a bit. I’m sure he’ll be feeling like his old self in no time.

With the advances today in hip replacement surgery, though we run behind Europe due to regulations and red tape, no one should postpone surgery due the fear of complications or a decrease in lifestyle.

The sooner one has the surgery when it is required, the better the recovery from a rehab standpoint.
