What can people do to avoid needing to get hip replacement surgery?
Is there anything people can do to avoid ever needing to get a hip replacement? Even if not 100% effective in preventing, how about putting it off? What creates a lifestyle that would minimize the chances of ever needing to get a hip replaced?
In many cases hip and knee replacement is due to arthritus -- not much you can do there. In most cases the surgery goes well but that is not always the case. My mother's knee replacement went horribly wrong --she was never able to walk again. The weak knee caused her many falls one of which broke her hip. My mother was in her eighties. Her husband had knee replacent twice in both knees -- total succss!
Of course good diet, exercise and keeping weight down will help but artheritus and old age don't leave many options.
Thank you so much for your comment, Faye. It is great to hear from others that have had to deal with this sort of thing before in their families. Personally, after losing some weight, I have lost a lot of pain in my feet. Thanks again, Paula

Last week, I had parts of both menisci in my right knee removed. When the doc got a good look at the inside of my knee with the arthroscope, he found a large "crater" at the end of the interior "knob" of my femur. Meniscus surgery ain't gonna help that. Now he's talking about...
