Hi, I’m new to the site, I am waiting for hip replacement, does anyone else suffer with severe lower leg pain with hip arthritis
Yes, it may have a few possibilities, (oa, spinal pressure, injury etc) so speak to your doctor first.
it’s a grin, honest!
thank you, unfortunately the doctor doesn’t seem that interested, I’ve had a knee X-ray and that is all ok
If they said it’s ‘satisfactory’ then you need to go back and ask the doctor to translate that into normal speech and explain what they have found. This crops up more often than you might think.
