In brief: Hip replaced recentl

If you just had the hip replaced, means you are stii having rehab.
So you should discuss that with the therapist and your orthopedic surgeon, it is not unusual to have pressure on the thigh and the lower leg after hip replacement.You did not say how many days post hip replacement are you.
