Here's how a friend of mine on another bulletin board I post to put it ....

So, first they knocked me out and chopped off my leg...

...essentially leaving it dangling by a few threads of muscle/tendon/sinew/whatever.  Then they stuffed a big chunk of — something — into the space where the bone used to be.  Then they fiddled around with stuff for another hour or so before trying to cover up their nefarious deeds.

In other words, I had total hip replacement surgery on my right hip.
