Discussion in 'Hip Replacement Recovery Area' started by Josephine, Feb 23, 2009.
My wound day 10
1 week post op
2 weeks post OP
7 days post op
3 weeks post op
anterior surgery. Scar across the top is previous abdominal surgery
Posterior approach 2 days out
7days after Anterior Hip Replacement and Pin Removal
Three days post up.
Lateral incision. Eight days post op - half the staples out approx eight inches long
4 months post op RTHR (leg with the tattoo on the foot) and 3 post LTHR.
16 staples each side. Approx 12cms long.
Then at 3.5 months post LTHR I had revision which required 22 staples. Surgeon went through same incision area but due to how quick it had healed and my type of scarring he cut out the scar so I just have one. Approx 15-18cms long.
