My THR was 8/12/19. I am 71 and in good health. So far things are going okay. Now walking without aid. My worry is my leg wth new hip has been swollen for almost a week. The nurses of the orthodox team don't seem to be concerned. I have had no pain, no fever, no discoloration...until today. I've been wearing the compression socks as suggested but this morning I had a light yellowish tint on my upper calf along with a line where the sock was so didn't put the socks back on after shower. My calf has swelled. I expected this but still am worried. I don't want to put the compression socks back on tonight but am not sure what to do.
