I'm new to this forum but have used the forum on knee replacement a lot, having had a TKR 18 months ago. I've recovered pretty well from that (although it's been a long haul) but am now concerned about my hip. I've been diagnosed with arthritis there but want to try to avoid a replacement for as long as possible. My question to fellow sufferers of hip arthritis is do you also get pain in your lower back? My pain is worse at the back of my pelvis. I exercise and use various treatments including visits to a chiropractor but nothing really cures it. I just wonder if, even if I were to get the hip replaced, I would still suffer from this lower back pain. It is just on the one side (same side as the arthritic hip and the opposite one to my knee replacement). I'd be interested to hear from any other sufferers.
