Though she didn’t have any timeline to compare her recovery time to, Helen felt like she was progressing at a good rate. After about two weeks, she was cleared for driving. After a couple of weeks, Helen did not have the same aching or problems bending as she did before. Four years after her surgery, Helen was asked to come in for a checkup. She needed to have a revision of the surgery to replace her instrumentation on the hip that had come loose. Helen didn’t like having another incision but she had no other choice but to have an additional surgery.
