In Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians, the 66-year-old momager visited an orthopedic surgeon after experiencing a lot of pain in her right hip, telling her doctor that she “literally couldn’t walk” across the room without a cane the week before. “I’m finally biting the bullet. I’m here to see the doctor because I have this excruciating hip pain,” Kris said. “I got an extensive set of x-rays, I had an MRI, I had a CT scan and everything else.” “The pain that I’ve been feeling seems to be getting in the way of my life and that is not something that I can really tolerate or have the patience for,” she continued. “I have this beautiful fabulous life and I have so many kids and grandkids that I want to share it with. All I wanna do is fix the problem and move on so I can live the best, longest life possible.”

While reviewing her MRI scans alongside her boyfriend Corey Gamble and doctor, Kris was told that she needs a hip replacement — and soon. The reality star was shocked by the news and admitted that she’s afraid the surgery is a sign of her getting old. She even laughed in shock at the idea of needing a walker while recovering from the procedure.”Hearing the doctor say that I need a hip replacement is very scary for me,” Kris said. “It reminds me of somebody older than I feel on the inside and somebody who is going to have challenges for the rest of her life. This is serious.”
