... in response to Hip Replacement Problems
  1. Geoffrey Hughes Geoffrey Hughes Belgium says:

    I  have had BOTH hips replaced. One 12 months ago and the other six months ago . Twelve month hip is 85% ok. The other hip the knee has become stiff. Can not find information for people who have had BOTH hips replaced.. Thank you Geoff Hughes.

      I've had both hips replaced; the right one in 2012, and the left one a year later. The surgeries were fine, I had a super easy recovery and was back to work in 6 weeks after each one. I honestly believe that my positive attitude about needing to have them done, as well as a fantastic surgeon were the keys to my success.

      Two days ago, the right hip dislocated,  which put me in excruciating pain until it accidentally went back into place by itself. I'm being careful the last two days, and am planning to see the ortho surgeon soon to see if anything may be wrong. The X rays showed no damage, but I'm just being proactive. The ER doc Friday said Zumba may be out for a while, but not to cancel my gym membership yet!

      I'm in my early 60s, and this isn't going to slow me down or stop me from teaching part-time.

      See what's going on...and hang in there!
