Hi Calvin, I just read your post and I must say from my experience fusing your hip is definatley an option. I would have to say that you should explore other options before you make the decision. When I was 18 that was one of my options but after exploroing with my Dr. we decided on another method. Now that bought me 13 years and now at age 34 I am 6 weeks post op on a hip replacement. What is the problem with your hip? Is there another way to help you? Have you discussed hip replacement? If you trust your DR. then she/he will help you make the decision that is best for you. Good Luck. Brenda.F. Stay on board at totally hip it really does help with questions and concerns that may arise. You are not alone. Everyone here is like my new found friends. They all helped me through the past 6 months up to and through surgery and I know they will be there for more support in the future.
