    I am a big fella with a bad hip. I am considering the use of a cane. I have reservations and want to know what you cane users think of it and did it help with pain and the ability to get around. Do ya wish you would have done it sooner? Any other advice you can give.

    Been there, done that!

    The cane will help you get around ... but it won't make the pain go away!

    My advice ... get that hip replaced!


    I have had both hips replaced!

    22 years ago, when I had my right hip replaced, it was a major surgery, and it took 4 months before I was back in shape.

    4 years ago, left hip was replaced. Thanks to more modern techniques, I was back to normal in 6 weeks. Only a 4 inch scar on my left butt cheek ... not like the 13 inch one from the 1st one on the right side.
