    Hip and Knee Replacement

    I have seen an orthopedic clinician who would like to refer me for the above procedures. The only thing is, I have never had my knee x rayed, and the pain I get in the lower spine area is not in the groin where the hip is, but on the outer area of my thigh where the pelvis is. I would like more investigation before committing myself. I wondered how I would be best doing this, and whether an MRI may be available

    Hip osteoarthritis

    I have osteoarthritis in my left hip (moderate) which never caused me any problem until 3 mos ago I did some leg lifts and splits. Progressively I get worse everyday. Thinking I had pulled ligaments or muscle I expected it to heal. Now the hip pain is intolerable & I walk with cane and can barely lift right leg. Did my exercises cause this?

    Up coming hip replacement

    By the grace of the good Lord, early retirement, I'll be turning 46 next week (near fatal motorcycle accident 3 years ago; another driver pulled out in front of me). After 38 years of leg pain (adolescent hip dislocation; pinned), decided to have my hip replaced. Excited to say the least, finally going to get it done. Since the near fatal accident, I'm also dealing with PTSD & other mental disorders; I isolate myself in my home. My anxiety by having to leave the security of my home is....

    Pain in hip (lower back) SI Joint?

    I've had pain at the top of my hip, in the lower back on the left side for about a year. It hurts with each step I take when walking, a stabbing pain. I went to the local orthopedic health system and they took xrays and said it "looked like" arthritis in the hip joint. They set me up for a cortisone shot and physical therapy. They said I'd feel great when I left, then it might hurt the next day after the lidocaine wore off and then feel better in 3-5 days when the cortisone took....

    Advice needed for new hip replacement "requirements"

    I am having a total hip replacement in a few weeks. The Doctors & hospital are all saying I need to go home 2 nights after surgery. I live alone. How in the heck can they expect people to go home and take care of themselves, plus drive themselves to P.T. & Dr. only a few days after surgery??? I could use advice or how others have dealt with these "new" regulations. I have been fighting for at least a few days of transitional care after surgery, but here are no guarantees. ---and....
