Speaking from experience, at 6 weeks I was still in bed. At 4 months I was still on crutches. At 6 months I could run 1/4 mile. At 1 year I could run 4 miles. 20 years later, I am still feeling it at times.
It takes a couple of time to recover from a broken hip. After the surgical operation has been done, the patient must undergo a series of rehabilitation to put back the operated bone into it's normal condition.
I had a complete hip replacement done 4/4/12 & still have pain in hip & femur bone on leg, I know it takes time to heal & am looking forward to spending it with my Gran'Children. It takes time to get tissue around thye bone to help it heal.
