I am just after geting both hips replaced due to severe OA for a while. I had 1st in dec and 2nd in feb. I have been through a lots if upd and downs in my recovery and have been if my work for neary 8 months. My hips have recovered fine though l am still in pain medication for it as my knee is so sore.
I have found out both knee's have to be replaced. My 1st surgery is in august. I don't know much about knee replacements l know everything about hips. Can you help with a few questions please as l am really scared.
How long am l in hospital for if l am having one done at a time?
I know the pain is bad but is it controlled well with pain medication in hospital.
Is it the same as my hips l get a general anasthetic for the operation.
How long is recovery for one
I take it its all strapped up after op and l get PT to help me walk again just like hips.
Any help would be appreciated as l would like to know how long l will be in recovery as l am still only 5 months from last full hip replacement and am really scared.
