Hi, I know what you mean about being scared. I am also scheduled for Total Hip Replacement in July 2000. I am 33 years old and will be 34 when the big day arrives. I have Legg Perthes and was diagnosed when I was 16. I had surgery 12 years ago to clean out the socket and round the ball, then the femur needed to be reset. I got about 9-10 years out of that with pain everyday but was able to deal with it until about 2 years ago. Now the pain is real bad again so it is time for the THR. That is the only thing left to do. You should get on to the discussion board and you will feel so much better. I did. I love reading and asking questions and getting some answers from people that have been there so to speak. Try the board, they are all wonderful people there. If you want to chat my E mail is firstname.lastname@example.org My name is Brenda. Take care and good luck.
