Patient Story: Connie from Anaheim, CA

  • Name: Connie
  • Location: Anaheim, CA
  • Replacement Type: Hip (Right)
  • Hobbies/Activities: Walking, Dancing

"All Activities Were Stopped."

Before having my hip replaced I was not able to walk without being doubled over in pain.  I could not do very much.  All activites were stopped. I was ready for surgery before the doctor suggested it.

My hip never hurt once after I had surgery. It aches if I overdo it, but I am able to do a lot of things now. I dance, go for walks, and enjoy going out with my friends with no pain. I did water therapy for 6 months and it really helped make my leg stronger.  

My advice for others having joint replacement is to be sure to do whatever they tell you to do in rehab.
