    I'm 21 undergoing LHR on July 15 - need pre OP and post OP advises please

    Hi guys. I came across this wonderful forum through my best friend Google. I am 21 years old and I was diagnosed with perthes syndrome at the age of 4. Later, this syndrome led to avascular necrosis (AVN) which eventually exhausted most of the cartilage in my left hip. I now have osteoarthritis...
