Had mine done recently...at Tees Valley Hospital. Totally worth it for removal of hip pain, althought my leg muscles seem to be taking a tad longer to recover than I expected! Be prepared for when your pain killer wears off post surgery.....it happens almost instantly and will have you squirming on your bed! [:D]

Do you generally have to be a certain age to get a hip replacement? I've a friend who desperately needs a knee replacement but they reckon they'll get knocked back at 59.

I had mine done 2 Years ago at the Friarage.. Once post op pain goes it feels great. You'll need to use sticks for a while. The best exercise is walking, in my opinion.
My GP suggested I was too young (59) but when I saw the consultant he said he had operated on people much younger and age doesn't matter.
Hope everything goes ok[^]

I was 51 in July, work that one out...

The consultant said normally he wouldn't but as he put it - I don't actually have any joint left.

The physio said that they now last between 25-30 years now. I'll be well happy if I'm around to get another replacement...

Spoke to a few people(including the mother in law) and they said it will hurt for a week or so but the difference to their life's is well worth it.

Hopefully I can get to the pub Xmas day for a couple.

Had mine done 15 years ago at the age of 35.
North Tees.

I was awake whilst they did it, a bizarre experience, but I didn't feel a thing.

It's going to hurt a bit after and the physios will be relentless, but that's the hardest bit, and it's not for too long.

You'll be up and away before you know it and jumping up and down at a Boro goal without even thinking of your hip.

The pain I was enduring for a couple of years before the op shocking, and mobility was greatly reduced, gained weight.
I'm pain free now and I go for a 2 mile walk five days a week, on top of the usual stuff, because I enjoy the walk. And lost 3 stone.

Keep active, and stick in! It'll be the best thing you've done.
Good luck.👍

UTB !

Best of luck with the Op.

I was doing CrossFit last night with someone who had had a hip operation this year. It seems to give people a new lease of life!!!

Good luck, Rocky. You'll be doing a Rocky up the steps to Whitby Abbey before you know it. I had my right hip done when I was 39 and it makes a huge difference to pain and mobility. The recovery is frustrating...no driving for 6 weeks, sleeping on your back, etc., but worth it.

Thanks Guys for the best wishes.

The current thinking is that you sleep in whatever position you feel comfortable.

Looking forward to the chance of having 6 weeks off driving, hopefully I pick up some report writing in the new year - self employed you see.

Finished now for Xmas and looking forward to the challenge and losing the stone and a half I have put on recently. Oh yes and playing golf again.
