    The last couple of weeks I've had a crick in my neck. First on the right side now on the left. I'm due to get a hip replacement in 3 weeks time. Is the pain my neck coming from my hip?

    I don't feel much if any pain in my hip due to earlier operations my nerves in that area are dead so the pain has been coming out in different parts of my legs. Could the ache in my neck also be because of my hip? I'm nervous about the op but also eager to have it done

    I think it's unlikely. Have you considered going to a chiropractor? I get neck pain quite often and that's my first port of call.

    @Tipp girl maybe not directly, but when your gait is altered dramatically it can throw other parts of your body out of aglinment in different ways. Right now, my opposite ankle wants to twist when damaged hip is tired.....

    Or, simply due to stress in favoring your hip. We adjust physically in so many ways, in an effort to avoid pain. I don't find it surprising you're suffering pain / discomfort in an area that seems totally unrelated.
    Wishing you comfort as you await your surgery.
    Please provide the surgery date for your signature.

    My surgery is on the 9th of October. I'm in at 8am and they hope I'm back home to my boys the same day sounds impressive if I can

    @Tipp girl I was discharged the same day. The surgeon gave me the option, and I pushed myself to satisfy the PT's walking requirement. If I did it again, I'd probably have stayed one night - that first night at home was rather difficult. I did have a bit of a complication in the form of a slight femoral neck fracture (I forgot the technical term, but not the full-blown femur fracture you hear about sometimes), so maybe I'd feel differently if everything had gone as planned. Either way, just listen to your body and don't try too hard to get out of there like I did!

    Staying overnight in the hospital isn't a bad idea. My OS gave me the option of a couple of nights if I wanted as it was maxing out my deductible anyway. I stayed 1 night and honestly that first night is tough and would have been tougher at home. The hospital I went to was top notch with incredible staff and service. My wife stayed in the room with me.
