Has anyone had both their knees and hips replaced??
emoritz posted:
I have had both knees and one hip replaced and will be having my other hip done next month. I was just wondering if anyone else has had all 4 replaced and if you have had any difficulties or problems?? I am 56 and had my 1st knee done about 8 yrs ago, my hip was done 2 yrs ago and my other knee 10 months ago. I'm not looking forward to this but I have no options.

Oh goodness, I had one hip done in 2010 and it changed my life in a negative way....but no groin pain.

My knee and ankle have been affected and I HOPE to never do another surgery.....

I have a friend who had 2 hips down at the same time and now his knees are shot, he will do NO surgery again.....
