LONG TERM CARE OF HIP REPLACEMENT

  • The main long-term problems of joint replacements are wear and tear of the socket or loosening of the component’s attachment to the bone.
  • We used to see patients annually after the twelve month office x-ray check-up, but we so seldom find a problem that we now recommend that you return anytime after the first year only if you perceive any problem with the hip.
  • If you have pain that does not go away, or seems to increase from day to day, you should come to see Dr. Maichand for x-rays and re-evaluation.
  • It could signify infection or loosening.

AVOIDING stressful activities such as
• Running, jogging, tennis,  badminton, football, baseball, horseback riding, and other activities.
• Heavy lifting
• Weightlifting
• Jumping from heights
• Falls and some exercise machines for the legs are dangerous for you
• Never lift or carry heavy weight
It is important that you not become overweight, since excess weight increases the stresses on the hip replacement, and can cause loosening. Every kilo of weight gained increases the forces on your hip by three Kilos!
The possibility of infection occurring around the replacement is another concern.
For the rest of your life if you develop any infection elsewhere in your body (for example bladder infection, infected cuts, boils, dental abscesses) it can travel via your bloodstream to the replacement.

ALWAYS NOTIFY YOUR DENTIST OR ANY TREATING PHYSICIANS THAT YOU HAVE A JOINT REPLACEMENT
