I am 2 weeks post op for THR. I am 83 and cannot understand why my Doc. performed cementless THR Had bleeding beneath quadracp muscle with drainage of yellow serous after drainage tube removed. Has anyone else had similar problem. Thought I would be up and out of the hospital and home in one week. Seems like it is taking much longer and is much more painful than originally anticipated. Seems like cement THR much less painfull with less time for recoup. Any comments or help would be greatly appreciated.
