Yes, almost all orthopedic surgery patients undergo the necessary investigations before any orthopedic surgery. Other tests are also performed before any anesthesia is given. This includes:
You will experience pain and discomfort after the operation which shall be controlled with medications. You shall be at the hospital for 3-7 days, depending on the type and technique of the surgery, so that the acute recovery phase is over and you are comfortable and can be on your own at the time of discharge from the hospital.
The surgeon would suggest you the most suitable option depending on your age, pain, medical history and the medical condition.
You will not need nursing care after you are discharged from the hospital. A stay of 5-6 days at the hospital would be enough for you to recover and stay at the hotel without the nursing care. However, if your treating doctor feels that you still need medical supervision, he would advise you to extend the stay at the hospital at some extra cost.
Returning to work is an individualistic thing and depends on your profession. Desk or sitting activities can be resumed after about 2-3 weeks of surgery, while physically active jobs should wait for 8-10 weeks.
You need to be very careful in using your body to allow for your orthopedic to heal well. You should not push, pull or lift anything heavy for at least two months after the surgery. Your surgeon and the medical staff shall give you specific instructions about do's and don'ts after the surgery. The physical therapist will tell you how to strengthen the muscles.
Yes, you can climb stairs but that would be tiring for you. You should avoid climbing the stairs for 6-8 weeks till you have fully recovered
The rehabilitation will begin the next day after the surgery at the hospital itself. Your physical therapist will do a number of exercises to regain your strength and range of motion. You should continue to exercise until your muscles are pain-free. It is a good idea to continue your exercises as a lifetime commitment to keep your muscles strong.
