I am having aching pain in my femur and knee 14 months post hip replacement.

Posted by pattyann

I had a total hip replacement 14 months ago, I work 8 hour days on my feet, 40+ hours a week.  I have to have the other hip replaced, probably next year, so the replaced leg is slightly longer.  I am favoring the other leg now, so I am trying to place most of my weight when standing on the replaced leg.  This, I feel will help with rehab after surgery next year.  I am concerned that once both hips are replaced I am going to have trouble working in the same position.  I am fearful that I will not be able to tolerate standing on 2 artificial hips for so many hours.  Can anyone help me with this question and these concerns?
