Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

Hi Andrew-- I doubt if your hip is broken. As far as I know, I am the only one on this board who has a replacement due to a break. The others have had their replacements due to osteoarthritis. I can assure you there was no doubt that my hip was broken, when my dog knocked me down! I feel it is reasonable to expect bruising and soreness after a bad fall, and especially a fall on stairs. Since you say it is just uncomfortable, you could probably treat it with heat and give it a few days to get better. If you are able to walk, bend, and so on, then you are probably not dealing with a serious situation. If, say in a week or so, it doesn't get better or if things change for the worse, then probably you should have it checked out. Good luck and keep us posted!
