I suffer from RD and Osteoporosis and after suffering many months of really bad lower back, groin and hip pain, the doctor sent me for X-rays. His receptionist has rung me and wants me to go in to see him on Tuesday. He said he thought I might need a hip replacement and would call me back if the X-rays confirmed this. I just want to know If there is anybody who has had this done and what was the outcome, does it stop all this pain. I am 70 years old and terrified at the thought of it. I wasn't sleeping much with the pain of it, now not sleeping even more with the worry. Is it worth all the hassle of it at 70?
