Hi Vivian:

I had Total Hip Replacement Uncemented 2 weeks ago and am still using a walker and feeling lousy.

I have bad muscle spasms usually in the morning, which I am taking Valium for, but it is making me feel sick!

My Dr. said that after my surgery I can't put any weight on my leg for 3 wks and then only as much as I can take for 3 more. Then after 6 weeks I start my therapy. Does this seem right?

No one seems to have any answers and I'm hoping this website will help.

Thanks!
