The hip is not very painful yet, but my knee is now arthritic and I have a torn ACL. I have lived with the knee like this for years, but one doctor said I have to replace the hip first and do the knee later, the other doctor said the opposite. Which way is right?
Hi, just read your post and had an idea. Have you put the question to your orthopedic surgeon about having both done at the same time? Seeing they are on the same side, both being right, it will be easier to rehabilitate afterwards. I'm having a double knee replacement at the same time due to spontaneous necrosis in both knees and both with the same amount of damage done, when it occurred. It will be tough with both legs out of action and double the pain, but less interruption to my life with less time time off work and less time spent recovering. Might be worth having a discussion with the appropriate experts and see what they think. Lisa.
