I am 3 weeks post op. Dr. Christy performed a complete anterior hip replacement. The literature said to expect bruising from my hip to my toes. But I had none. Dr. Christy has such gentle hands I give him the credit for my quick recovery. Today my girlfriend broke her leg and I am taking over her...more
