My NHS area is West Herts and they hold a seminar for all hip/knee replacement patients but is up to you if you attend or not . I did and so glad as I found it really useful and interesting. They explained everything to you from the moment you get into your bed untill 3 months down the line....I recently read article by Bel Mooney titled What They Don't Tell You About Hip Replacements....well as I read through it I though yes I know this...they told us that...fancy her not knowing !!!!

Do other areas do this because if so it is certainly worth attending.
