Hip replacement surgery requires a lot of rest and recovery after the fact, but it also involves a lot of preparation. Proper preparation will lead to a smoother, faster recovery. You may not know exactly what you need to do to be fully prepared for the surgery, so we’ve written a blog to help you out. Read our Ricochet blog to find out what requires your attention before surgery!

Learn All You Can About Hip Replacement Surgeries

It is essential to go into your surgery with as much knowledge as possible. While you’re preparing for the procedure, make sure to write down any questions you might have and ask your surgeon beforehand. Also, make sure to ask what you can expect during the recovery period.

Get in Shape as Best You Can

The healthier you are before your surgery, the faster you’ll be able to recover. If you’re able, take the time to do some exercises and get in the best shape you can before your surgery. Make sure to talk to your doctors about what they think would be the best kind of exercises for you physically.

Make the Appropriate Arrangements at Home

You want to make sure that your home is prepped for recovery before you leave for the hospital. When you are discharged after surgery, you don’t want to be scrambling to get things in place. Your sole focus at that point should be rest and recovery. If you can, install railings around your bathtub and toilet. Make sure you also have a comfortable chair to sit in, one that has arms so you can lift and lower yourself out of the chair without putting pressure on your new hip. These kinds of preparations will make your transition from the hospital to home so much easier.
