    Contemplating total hip replacement after 2 spinal fusions

    I had a Bilateral spinal fusion and lumbar decompression ( L3-L4) in 2008 and 2nd spine surgery
    a Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion L2-L3 ( entering through the side) with a Nuvasive Wide Peek Cage placed in 2015.
    Now that my left hip is full of arthritis ( Total bone on bone) the lower back seems to be acting up again.

    It feels like I have a stitch in my side but in my lower back and I feel slight movement there...Could the bad hip be throwing off the spine?

    Anyone have this experience...Some have said hip replacement could help back????

    VERY uncomfortable!!!

    Welcome your comments and experience.

    Many thanks
