 After your surgery, you will be placed in a hinged hip brace that is worn around your waist and your knee. You are to wear this at all times except when bathing. You will also be provided with foam booties to wear at night; these help cushion your feet while sleeping. Please refer to the directions that come with the brace for details on how to put the foam booties on your feet.  The hinged hip brace will be preset to limit the flexion of your hip. You may only move within this preset range of motion. Do not force the motion though because this will likely cause pain. The limits of your brace will be adjusted at your post operative office visits.  ICE  An ice machine will be provided to you prior to your surgery. This will help decrease swelling and pain after your surgery. Use the ice machine as much as possible when you get home at intervals of 30 minutes on and off.

During this time you will have little to no feeling in the body part where you had surgery (i.e. leg). Please be careful and use your brace and crutches during this time to avoid any falls after your surgery. Also, an injection of local anesthesia was injected into your hip after the completion of the operation. This medication will wear off in 5 to 6 hours. To control your pain during this transition while the nerve block is wearing off, you are to eat first and then begin taking the pain medication (e.g. Vicodin,
Percocet, etc) immediately when you get home from surgery. This will prevent you from having severe pain. Take the pain medication every 4 hours until you go to bed.  The day after surgery you can take 600 mg of Ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) every 6 hours to help with inflammation and pain. This medication will help cut down the use of narcotic-based pain medication. However, if you still have pain after taking the Ibuprofen, continue taking the pain medication every 4-6 hours as needed. One week after surgery you will begin taking (1) tablet of Naprosyn 500 mg twice a day, for an entire month. This will prevent bone from regrowing in the hip
 A sleeping medication (e.g. Ambien) is also provided to help you sleep at night. Take one tablet 30
