Rehabilitation changes from person to person. After discharge from the hospital, you can get in and out of bed independently, walk with 2 crutches and use stairs. After about 1 week you can walk with 1 crutch on the side that has not been operated on. After about 3 weeks, short walks are possible without crutches.
A walking stick is unnecessary. After 4 to 6 weeks, most daily movements are possible, but you still feel like you were operated on! This discomfort progressively disappears between 6 weeks and 3 months and the load can gradually be increased.
