Customer Question
Second opinion] four weeks...

Second opinion] four weeks ago I underwent a total hip replacement. it is about a week now that my right thigh is swollen/ hot n hurts. the surgeon removed liquid about 5 days ago - but it seems it has filled up again. is this normal? what can be done?

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?

No recent injuries. swelling about a week - 3 weeks after surgery.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No! he has a full copy of all my records.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
