I am writing for any support/help that might be out there. I broke my hip 5 years ago and had a pin inserted. This failed and I had another about six months later. Two years ago I couldn't walk upright, had physio, a screw replaced and now had the whole thing removed. I am now on another waiting list for a hip replacement. Two years of waiting lists has taken its toll on both physical and emotional wellbeing
I now am terrified of hip replacement because of previous history and wondered if there was anyone else in same position. I asked if I could drive and was told I could if it didn't cause pain, after I had told doctor that I was in constant pain. Worried about shortening of leg and was asked if I had built in support in shoe so what am I to expect?.
