What am I looking at for recovery recovery

I'm having surgery for 3high grade tears in the tendons associated with my hip .
I've put up with the pain for several years including acupuncture and medication .
Atm I'm on crutches as the rheumatoid arthritis has flared up the tendons in my foot
I'm just wondering what to look forward to during the post surgical recovery.
Thanks

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. If the tendon injury is chronic or has occurred a long time back, the recovery may not be as good as a recent injury. The expected prognosis would also depend on the tendons involved, the type of injury, associated complications/ conditions etc. I would suggest discussing the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with the treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
