Your surgeon will encourage you to use your "new" joint shortly after your operation. After total hip or knee replacement, you will often stand and begin walking the day of or day after surgery. Initially, you will walk with a walker, crutches, or a cane. Many patients have temporary pain in the replaced joint because the surrounding muscles are weak from inactivity while the tissues heal.
Exercise is critical to your recovery process. Your physical therapist will discuss a customized exercise or rehabilitation program for you after your surgery. This varies for different joint replacements and for differing needs of each patient. Your joint range of motion will improve after surgery, however each patients results will vary.
