Hip replacement and Pip
Hi all I was lucky enough to get a hip replacement funded by my elderly mother. I had not even been able to get an appointment with nhs consultant so I was not on a waiting list for surgery. I had my surgery 6wks ago and it’s been amazing except that my other hip is hampering my recovery and limiting the exercise, ie walking! I’m in receipt of pips but am not sure how to let them know I’ve had this operation. I’m still waiting for my nhs appointment and although I had moderate damage in my other hip a year ago it is now extremely painful. How can I discuss my pips claim if I’ve not yet seen the consultant and the only evidence of continuing pain and lack of mobility is from me?
