Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

My father has two hip replacements. Last summer, he actually did crash his bike. And he fell so hard he cracked his femur. The replacement joint didn't budge. Once you fully heal, it takes a lot of force to displace those joints.

Now, you shouldn't be dumb about it. My dad still skis, but he sticks to easier trails, so he doesn't risk a hard fall. It's not like having perfectly heathy original knees, but it's much better than what you have now.

Definitely get another opinion before you commit to the surgery. Not because I think it's a bad idea, just because it is a very big deal.
