    Hi @tonytiger2432 , and welcome to this lovely forum. Sorry to hear you had such a false start, that must be deeply frustrating, but having lost an uncle who passed away on the operating table during routine knee surgery I know this is important (not wanting to scare you though!). You might get more responses if you start a new thread under the "Living with Arthritis" forum, maybe title it something like "Angina and hip replacement". I think I remember seeing threads where people have been juggling heart conditions with arthritis, so hopefully someone will come forward soon.

    Oh dear me @tonytiger2432

    This sort of thing has happened to others they do seem to need to cover themselves by getting a cardiac opinion.

    BIL had this with gallstones and daughter's FIL for prostate op. Both have very very minor heart murmurs that can apparently come with age anyway.

    Maybe they could consider doing your op using epidural rather than full General anaesthetic?
