Ive been encouraged by several doctors to do my double hip replacements sooner rather than later. I need advice on what to do! Here’s the backstory At 18 I was diagnosed with a rare blood and bone marrow condition which required a bone marrow transplant. Cue chemo, radiation, and lots of steroids. In 2012 I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis of both hips. I have no hip pain for the most. If I do have pain, it’s more of an aching for 1-2 days. My last MRI showed stage II on the left and stage III on the right. Normally that would mean tons of pain but... I’m not gonna question it. The last MRI was over two years ago :/ So here’s my dilemma; a few doctors have encouraged hip replacement now, while I’m young (27) as opposed to later. But I’m not in that much pain! Maybe once a month or two. However stage III is indeed pretty close to total collapse. I’m in nursing school. I could theoretically get at least the stage 3 hip replaced over the summer. What would you do?
