Getting a new hip
 
 
I'm off to see the consultant this morning to see about getting a new hip, 51 if you are wondering.


Day to day its fine, but ask me to walk more than half a mile and that's when it starts to hurt.

Any advice from other sufferers?

My sister has had two over the years - 10 years apart.
Everything has gone really well, just follow the doctors orders

Good luck

Hi, my eldest son had his hip replaced age 31 (about 8 yr ago) he was back to work (very physical job) in no time...did still played the odd 5-a-side game, rather than the usual sat/sun leagues. Now he plays more golf than footy...
Good luck.👍

Had one done 9 years ago aged 39 at JCUH after having Perthes disease when I was a child. So far so good. Recovery took a few months but it made a massive difference to pain and mobility. Good luck.

Thank you[^]

My dads had 5 now [sad]

He's smoked all his life somis in rat poison to thin his blood so he had to havebthe first op while awake .

The following ops he was asleep for .

They had some dodgy replacements few yr back so in the bright side atleast you've missed that .

My dad was walking to the club pretty quick after considering .

Getting a new hip

 
I'm 43 and noticed recently that mine is starting to click a lot on the left side. Not too painful, but standing on a train for 30 mins aches.

Still play 5-a-side once a week and get my 10k steps a day in Mon-Fri, I suspect the hard sports hall floor is not doing me any favours.

LB try and get it xrayed and it will soon tell you the level of damage you have suffered.

I was still playing 11 and 5 aside until I packed in at the age of 43/44 and then it has just deteriorated since then.

You have been warned.

I'm due to get my second in January.

My first was a re-surfacing using the now outlawed metal on metal. Other people may have had issues with theirs but mine was a life changer. All done when I was 38 year old. Now 10 years later I am looking at a full hybrid hip replacement on my other joint. The resurfacing is still going strong.
I would have had this operation sooner but due to serious heart issues I was deemed too high risk. Now, they are satisfied I am no longer high risk I am pencilled in for it in Hartlepool Hospital.

Getting a new hip

 
my right hip has been giving me intermittent pain over the past 2-3 years , sometimes its fine then all of a sudden its painful and im limping around. definitely getting worse though.

out of interest - when you first went to the docs about it did they send you to physio etc first or go straight to the xray /scan stage?

Had my right hip replaced last September on the NHS at a Spire private hospital. I was given a ceramic hip and it is brilliant. I can get up stairs very easy now whereas I was struggling before. Back on 12 hour shifts. Good luck Rocky !

Getting a new hip

 
Rev I went to see GP and she sent me for an Xray straightaway. That was nine years ago mind. I didn't realise I had put up with it for that long, it has really worsened in the last 2years. I've had a further 2 Xrays one in 2014 and one again 2months ago.

I had a bout of Physio last year trying to strengthen the area around the joint but that was no help.

I went for an assessment with the Head Physio, on Wed, and she said that the 3rd Xray (taken 2 months ago) was one of the worst that she has seen. so she has referred me to the Surgeon.

But to answer your initial question first it was an Xray to view the current state of the joint.

I'm wondering if this sort of thing is hereditary as mine right one has been gradually getting worse since I was a kid I'm 43 now . My left one started about 12 yrs ago .

I'm not one for going to the doctors and I dare say they'd rather leave it as long as they can anyway before anything is done .

Itís all the rage this procedure.

Heard loads of positive reports that itís a straigforward procedure now and recovery times rapid. Walk with a limp for a few weeks then back to normal. Hospitalised for less than a week

Getting a new hip

 
Jo99 - Recovery times are different for each person. My experience was quite straight forward. I opted for the back block aenethesia and was in hospital for 4 nights / 5 days. Walking on crutches quite freely on discharge. 10 days later I had my clips removed. Was down to one crutch after about 2 weeks. After 3 months, I was back on my exercise bike and back to work. Three weeks of light duties later, I was back on full shifts.

The only thing I would recommend is that anyone having the op follows the Physioís instructions carefully. Although probably not important now, I still do my exercises 13 months on.

The other sticking point is weight, a lot of places wonít do the op if a person weighs more than 107 kg if having it done on the NHS. I had to lose a bit, but as long as you show determination they will do it.

It has given me a new lease of life. I managed to walk an average of 8-12 miles per day in Berlin in June and again in San Francisco in September, and there are some ruddy big hills there! I can also ride my motorcycle again which is a freedom you canít make up,
and better still climb the steps to my seat in the West Stand upper without pain.....
