53 year old LPN, 30 yrs in various nursing fields, LTC for last 10 years...I'm having to consider a total hip and possible knee replacement...can they both be done on the same limb at the same time?? Realistically, how much function can I expect post recovery and PT? and for how long? Can I expect the full ROM that I've lost, and the endurance to return to work? I've read that problems are common 7-10 years post replacement, at my age I don't like those stats, also that dislocations are a risk. Any nurses out there who have had joint replacements ...please respond.
