Losing Weight after surgery
I am having my hip replacement at the end of January. I am overweight (about 270lbs) and so far have lost about 25 pounds. My surgeon does not seem concerned that I still have alot of weight to lose, saying I will definatly lose more once I am more mobile.
Has anyone else had experiences with this? I just read an article this evening that overweight females may have more post surgery problems, because of the weight. But if I continue to lose weight, will problems still be an issue?
I have always been heavy, but I also used to be able to walk alot more, and be on my feet longer without pain. By the way, I am 5 ft 6 inches tall.
So, what goals should I set for myself?
