After a hip replacement, how long will it be before I feel better?

Most recovery is in the first four to six weeks; by then, bone grows into the metal components and most patients become mobile enough to walk with a cane. Most patients feel pretty good by about six to eight weeks after surgery, and within three months of surgery, most patients can engage in daily activities with little to no pain. Long-term recovery, which involves the complete healing of surgical wounds and internal soft tissue, takes about six months for most patients.
