Hi so pleased to of found somewhere for honest opinions . I am 38 years old and have been suffering with my hip since my mid 20s, however my mobility has decreased much more in the last 2-3 years. It’s like I’m a contortionist trying to get my socks on. I workout a lot to keep the pain and flexibility at its best but even that is starting to cause regular problems now. I’m lucky the pain isn’t horrendous but this is purely through keeping up the exercise. Mobility is the biggest problem. My doctor says they won’t operate on me as I’m to young and it’s not recommended. However I think this is more about the NHS funding than what’s best for me. I'm nervous about leaving it too long and ruining my knees and other hip. I wanted to get your feedback and experience from people who have had operations young and possibly those who have had to have it done a second time on its success. Also experience with different types of new hip joints. Hope that makes sense thank you.
