Hi, I am 27 years old, of course with a bad hip. I have had a damaged hip from birth and developed arthritis over a year ago. DRs tell me I'm too young for a THR and have offered other options with a lower success rate. What type of statistics did you receive? Is the graph supposed to last a lifetime, or will you need a THR at some point? FYI-in regards to having children, I had one last year, which is what caused my hip to worsen-hopefully that won't be the case with you. If anyone has any information to offer, please e-mail me at KHotchkiss1@excite.com--Thanks.
