    My father had both hip replaced about 2 years apart. The first one changed his life! He was in a wheel chair and wasn't really able to walk. After it, he was up and moving around like old times. But he got careless and fell and broke his other side. Had the surgery. Didn't go well, and it got infected. After a few months they had to remove it, and he went down hill...long story short...it killed him. Just know there can be complications with infection being a big one.
