    Aching due to weather changes after surgery

    Does anyone have problems with aching due to the weather changes after surgery? My grandma had hip replacement and whenever the weather changes, she can feel it.

    I did for the first year. Although, when it's really cold, I shiver which causes me to develop muscle spasms the next day. I do whatever I can NOT to get cold. I bought the warmest winter coat I could find last winter, which helped--a long one covering the butt, and with a hood too!
