    Hello poultonreds and welcome to the forums from the moderation team.

    I am very pleased to meet you after your recent hip replacement. Better late than never though!

    This is a useful link to information about hip replacement surgery by Arthritis Research UK:

    https://www.arthritisresearchuk.org/arthritis-information/surgery/hip-replacement-surgery.aspx

    If you read down there is information about recovery and looking after your new hip.

    We have a great community here, who have lots of experience of arthritis, I know they will make you very welcome and help if they can. Hopefully someone will be along soon to share their experience.

    I look forward to seeing you posting in future.

    Best wishes

    Ellen.

    Hi there. Congratulations on the new hip. I hope it's as big a success as mine. Just listen to the docs and physio and do as they say. Don't try to rush things. You won't go far wrong.

    I had mine at 30, now 45.
    You don't need to come to terms with it, within a few months you will forget you have it.
