you might want to check the Queen Mum. She had two hip replacements in her 90s.

I am only 79 - had four hip surgeries last year - 2 debridement for an infection, then removal for several months and the final replacement was the fourth surgery. I have just graduated from walker to occasional cane use -

Issues were - the surgery to remove the original prosthesis was very long because of the hard cement used on the original replacement (1976). I am unable to perform all of the exercises since with the long ago first surgery there was no PT. My muscles simply now refuse any taylor motion.

I had a brief problem after the removal surgery(the third one) with fluid retention and lung congestion - very quickly and efficiently handled by the hospital doctors. All of these last surgeries had hospital stays of 3 days with a visit to a rehab center after the first. That was both unpleasant had a poor outcome. The subsequent rehabs were done at home with the assistance of a daughter who lives with me.
