My mother fell & broke her hip while visiting us & ended up in Lancaster Hospital, she had pins placed in her hip, she was 85 at the time & quite active. After weeks of agony in Lancaster Hospital we later found on her transferal to Leeds where she lives that her hip was still in fact broken & the operation was a complete failure. After weeks of being drugged up with pain killers & having to be pushed around in a wheel chair she had a complete hip replacement at Chapel Allerton Hospital, what a difference within a few weeks my mother was able to walk again with just a walking stick & the pain in her hip had gone. I left this review as I hope no one has to ever go through that & be made think that being in great pain weeks after an operation is normal, I know at 85 anything could happen but it would be terrible to have lost my mother because she was not given the correct treatment & thank goodness she had her family to fight for her which sadly lots of old people don't.
