hip arthroscopy outcome score.
SYMPTOMS AND FUNCTIONAL LIMITATIONS
The following questions ask about symptoms that you may experience in your hip and about the function of your hip with respect to daily activities. Please think about how you have felt most of the time over the past month and answer accordingly.
You should be able to fully bear weight on your leg when discharged from the hospital, but most patients may need to use crutches, a cane, or a walker for a few weeks until they are comfortable walking on their new knee. You will be given a prescription for pain medication and schedule a series of follow-up visits starting sometime around six weeks after surgery.

Discharge from Hospital to home
Depending on how well you heal after the surgery, your stay in hospital can vary from between 4 to 10 days and you will need help at home for several weeks.
Based on your own individual circumstances you will be able to go directly home or a rehabilitation centre after your surgery. Any sutures that need to be trimmed or removed is usually done around 10 to 14 days following your joint replacement.
