Hi, I just wanted to get any feedback from anybody who has had a similar issue and went ahead with the surgery. I was hoping to get any personal experience from someone who has had THR surgery in their 30's and the post operative issues they may have dealt with. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my right hip at the age of 33. At the age of 31, I felt a pinch in my right hip and I attributed it to a strained muscle from sports but it was always there when I walked or got up from a sitting position. I was still able to do my daily activities and I got accustomed to the pain. After my MRI, the osteopathic surgeon said that I have no cartilage in my right hip and he could not find any cause. He told me that I will need a THR and I was in shock for days. I am a very active person and this is the last thing I would have thought was wrong with me. The surgeon said that having surgery at a younger age would be beneficial in regards to recovery but I would most likely have to have it re-done at some point. Has anybody been through this surgery in their 30's? How was your recovery and activity level afterwards? Thanks.
