I had a total replacement in jan 08

Took a while appx 4 weeks to even get moving and another 6-8 wks to move around .Could do simple things like bath  in about 3-4 weeks this can be tough just make sure you follow strict drs orders

Ask you doctor how long will you still be living with assistence. I believe that in a few weeks you will be able to live on your own like you used to.

In any case, visit reference websites for further information about your present condition (like http://www.surgery.com).

WIsh you all the luck!

It can be a month. Your doctor should tell you the exact time for you. Don't try to get back to work-your usual self too fast. I have heard about this book: God's Medicine Is Best (herbs, vitamins and minerals) by Linda Wise. It can help you with recovery. Good Luck.
