How long should I be icing my hip for after surgery?

For the first 2 weeks after surgery, we want you to ice your hip 5-6 times a day for 30 minutes at a time. There is no limit to how many times a day you can ice; it will only help with the pain and keep the inflammation down to a minimum. However, we do not recommend that you ice while you are sleeping!

After 2 weeks, you can ice your hip as often as you want, but you don’t need to do it as often. We recommend you ice at least once a day for 30 minutes and after physical therapy.
