Hip Replacement after Knee Replacement
My aunt had a knee replace last March and has been in terrible pain ever since. Her doctors are telling her that she now needs a hip replacement. She has no pain in her hip, the pain is in the interside of the knee that was replaced.
Problems at the hip can cause knee pain but that is not always the case. If you are still uncertain, get a second opinion.
