I had a RTHR in Nov 2018 after a fairly lengthy period of trying to convince a surgeon there was a problem Eventually I saw a rheumatologist who diagnosed extensive cartilage damage and then a surgeon who offered an arthroscopy but I went for a THR, his first words were “You were right”. Now at 4 months post op I am making progress, little to no pain and although I haven’t yet got full range of movement I am happy. However by the time I was 6 weeks post op my right hip had already started to “twinge”. I asked the surgeon at my 6 week check and he said “it wasn’t too bad” but will review it in August. It is getting worse and I know it needs doing! So my question is , is there an optimum time to do a second THR. I have private insurance so can fit it around my life ( two daughters getting married, one in Nov 2019 and one in April 2020), is it better to wait until the other hip is completely healed or just go for it?
