    I had an unsuccessful arthroscopy of my right hip, and am waiting for a THR in April. Meanwhile, in the past week my previously asymptomatic left hip has begun to ache like crazy, with pain going down to my shins and feet. Hurts to sit, stand, pivot, bend - you name it, and actually hurts more on the left than on my right side. I am trying to decide whether I am losing my mind, or I really have both hips going down at once. Is this a thing? :sad:

    @Scarab it's not unusual to have the "good" hip complain pre-op. Are you using a cane or crutch to take the weight off your sore hip? If not, you are probably putting more weight on your good side to compensate. Use a walking aid until that surgery date.

    @Jaycey, the cane is a good idea. My husband said the same thing today. I will try it.

    I see your date is approaching...
    The thought of surgery was stressful to me but certainly not as stressful as the thought of continuing on with that horrid hip pain!
    You will be so glad to have this done!
    I have never regretted my surgery.
    Roll on January 22!:yes:
