PIP and Hip Replacments
Apologies if this has been asked before, I have searched and couldn't find an answer.
I have osteoarthritis in my neck / shoulders / arms and hips. My hips (well all of it) has got worse over the passed few months.
I'm very luck to have private medical insurance through work - so I've been having physio during the lockdown, and got to see a specialist a few weeks ago.
He seems to think that I will need hip replacements, which scares me a load tbh. Apart from the "fear factor" I'm worried financially - I've been awarded PiP (also got a blue badge), and was wondering if I will loose that post hip replacements?
Don't get me wrong, I'll be glad to be out of pain in my hips (fingers crossed), but the benefit has been a huge help.
