I want to ask what is the meaning of I broke my hip? is it an idiom

The hip, or hips as there are two, are large bones in the body that attach the legs. When we say 'I broke my hip', 'I broke my arm' or 'I broke my leg' we mean that we broke the bone. I hope that helps Mayar.


Hips are a part of the body, at the very top of the leg. It's not an idiom. It seems Stuart had some sort of accident and got hurt.
