I am 20 days post op THR and my leg looks quite swollen from the knee to the hip. I think the hospital said it would be swollen for about 30 days afterwards but i am not sure if i heard them correctly as i was in recovery at the time. I am not worried about it but would welcome some advice.
Regards

    Hello
    A certain amount of swelling would be normal after a total hip replacement and should gradually subside but if this swelling is increasing or the leg is looking red or hot to touch please contact your doctor.
    Best wishes
