Have just joined today... and saying hello I have it confirmed a week or so ago that I have severe arthritis in both hips and am now on the waiting list for a hip replacement ...left on first as that's the worst. It can't come quick enough as far as I am concerned as it really is impeding on my life at the moment and gets me down from time to time..especially as I really don't enjoy the dog walks any more...after 10 mins I feel really uncomfortable....at least something can be done so must bare that in mind. My biggest regret was to keep putting off going to the GP in the first place ...had I gone 6 months or so ago am sure I would have had one new hip by now !!!
