Activities That Can Be Done After Hip Joint Surgery In The Hip?
Tonight, I want to ask, my mother (67 years) has 3 weeks after hip joint surgery on the hip, what activities can my mother do, what are good forms of exercise and is it okay to fold my legs and tilt my body?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hip joint surgery is one of the major operations and is most often performed on elderly women due to decreased bone condition due to menopause. This is usually supported by a relatively fat posture, rarely does activities and lacks nutrition.
Regarding your question, what activities your mother can do actually depends on how well your mother's recovery process is going, how much damage she has suffered so that she needs surgery, etc., which can only be controlled by a doctor who treats your mother directly because he knows how your mother's initial condition, her condition during the operation, her condition when she was recovering at the hospital, and so on. Two people with a history of the same surgery may need different recovery times depending on the factors we have mentioned previously
Apart from that, what you can do for your mother at home is help her to practice by doing the movements little by little. You can try to fold your legs and tilt your body slowly, but if you feel pain or something feels uncomfortable, stop immediately and try again at a later time. But again to be sure and to avoid misunderstanding, it would be better if your mother's orthopedic surgeon told you. What is clear, your mother can support the acceleration of her recovery by eating lots of foods that contain protein such as eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, seafood, soybeans, tempeh, beef and chicken breast. I wish your mother a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
