My 88 year old mother has recently undergone 2 unsuccessful hip replacements -- both dislodged and became infected. She continues to be in great pain. Seems the only choice now is girdlestone. What is the recovery and rehab process? How long will it take? How much mobility will she have when done? Can she have any independence, such as getting herself in and out of bed and to the bathroom?
