Hip braces

Hi All - I have painful hip pain and after waiting 12 months for surgery it looks like they don’t want to replace because of a heart attack 20 years ago and mild angina.

If I have to live with this are hip braces any help if so which ones?

Thank you

    I'm sorry to hear this. My husband just got his two hip replacements in before his diagnosis of heart failure. I know we had someone on here a month or several back with a similar problem. In your situation I'd be looking for the best advice and I think that would come from a physio. Why not ask your GP to refer you?
