After Hip Replacement: Managing Your Pain

Medications may have been prescribed for you to use once you get home. With pain under control, you’ll be able to get back to an active life sooner. Use pain medication only as directed. Take each dose on schedule, before pain becomes severe. Tell your health care provider if the medication doesn’t control your pain enough, or if you suddenly feel worse.
