I had my right replaced on 2/22. The pain was about 6 going into surgery and the doctor found the joint to be mostly fused during the procedure adding more surgical time and complexity in removing. The pain for the first 2 days post-op was 7 to 8, but the third day was like a switch and decreased to 3. I went home on the fourth day and the following week it increased to 4 and 5. I'm now 4 weeks post-op and I would rate it 0. Having my left done in about 2 months and looking forward to it (pain is about 6 to 7).
