a little about me I had a staph infection at 7 years old that traveled from my ankle and settled in my hip. I had a spontaneous hip fusion. It seems this is a very rare thing as no orthopedics in my area have seen anything like me I am looking for individuals like myself that have fusions but also anyone that has had a replacement not that I am finding much in it besides a dr in Canada that has performed them. Highly interested in anyone with a fused hip surgical or spontaneous like mine. More info I am now 45 and have horrible back pain if I am active if I pretty much be a couch potato it isn’t so bad.
