"total hip replacement"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

I had my hip replaced in January 2015. I am 70 yrs old. I was very anxious about several aspects of the procedure.In retrospect, I didn't need to worry.There was a supportive, professional atmosphere where I felt like a person ,not just a number. I was home after 2 and a half days and now,after 6 weeks, I feel I have got my life back..Make sure you do all the recommended exercises. If,like me, you have been putting it off, dont..it is a good procedure.
