Comment to post.

I don't really have a question as much as I'd like to post a comment. I had a total hip replacement three months ago. Before the operation the doctor sent me to a physical therapist. She told me what to expect for pain and movement after the surgery.

Knowing ahead of time that I might need a walker helped me accept it and use it properly when the time actually came. Best of all, I know it was probably only temporary so I didn't think twice about it.

I left the hospital and went to a step-down unit where I stayed less that a week. Everyone there said the patients who get therapy before joint replacement move along faster and go home sooner. I highly recommend it!
