New hip at 93. You have got to be joking! My old next door neighbour had two new hips in her 80's but having them knocked her for six. For best recovery the doctors need the patient to be up and mobile on the new hip very quickly. I don't think there's any chance she could do that, being half paralized and already wheelchair bound. Very high chance of DVT's and clots going round in her blood stream. I think it's under 6 months tops now folks - since I can't see her being strong enough to recover from this major operation.
