For Leanne’s first hip replacement, she was in relatively little pain because she was in such pain before the surgery. For your hip replacement to be really successful, Leanne stresses that you must be committed to do the exercises that you are told to do. Leanne also advises that the leg of the hip that was replaced needs to be strengthened, since it is the weaker leg, the stronger leg will want to take over which can lead to back problems. Leanne had her other hip replaced six years after her first surgery. This time she was in more pain and had to rely on pain medication and much more mindful of what physical activity she did or didn’t do.
