Hi, I’m new to this forum and wondered if anybody may be able to give some advice. I have finally been told that I need a total hip replacement. My pain has become so intense that I cannot walk more than a few yards, I can’t put shoes/socks on, I can’t really do anything without ending up sobbing in pain. I watch my husband walk the dogs and I get so down that I am unable to live my life as I once did. I have tried morphine, amaltriptolene, tramadol, the only thing that helps slightly is cocodolmol.does anybody have any suggestions to help with the pain? I have to wait 3/4 months to see a consultant and I don’t know how I’m going to manage in the meantime.
