    Hello,
    My grandmother had a hip replacement done last month and she seemed to heal well. Now the surgical site is inflamed, appears red and hot. What can I do to help her?

    Hello peter2018,
    I would like to inform you that this is a very serious case. There is a very high probability that she might e having an infection at the surgical site. Redness, swelling, pain and loss of function at a surgical site are indicators of an nfection. Please tae her to a medical facility immediately to prevent any further complications.
