    Failed partial hip replacement
    An_267395 posted:
    I am a 67 year old. Fell down stairs in July 2015. They put in a partial hip. I have not been able to walk correctly without pain in thigh. I use a cane, but still no strength. Dr wants to do a full hip replacement. I do not want surgery again for I almost died with a pulmonary embolism. They want to put in a filter to prevent this. Does anyone know of another choice to help beside surgery. I have been to tons of physical therapy with no help. Thank you
