I had thr of my right hip on Tues. March 30. I came home from the hospital on Friday.
I began home health care with nurses and pt on Saturday. All seemed well except from some weeping at the incision site where a nurse pulled skin away while removing bandages.
My dh has kept the site medicated and says it looks like it is getting better, but it is still soiling the bandages. The last two days I have had pain near the incision site, it seems a little warm, and hurts like a reallly, really bad bruise.
Today I'm pretty sure the hip is swollen . Is this normal healing or is it something I should worry about?
I have increased pain meds (Norco) because the pain seems worse than when I came home. I'd appreciate any input.
