Well the wife went in for one today, went down to theatre at 3.30 and i went to see her at 6.30, WOW, she was sat up in bed looking perky and she had only been up from theatre 30 mins. looked real well and only had a little setback with feeling sick and high blood pressure , nurses laid her flat and within 15 mins she was back to feeling good. hope the full recovery goes as well.:Clap:

I would agree witchy.

But, the operation now lives or dies upon the wife doing her physio properly and consistently.

I have seen tons of people with new hips/knees and the ones that don't do the work often get worse rather than better.

I know an 85 year old guy that has a new lease of life after his hip done a few months ago.

Good luck to the missus.

A guy at our golf club had a hip replacement recently and hes playing as well as he ever did.
If he is anything to go by it looks very encouraging for your wife.
The best of luck to her mate.
