Its great to find out I am not alone. I was first diangonsed with Legg Perthes when I was 4 in my left hip then at 10 in my right hip. I am now 34 and am in severe pain on my right side. I have been told as well to just "suck it up" I am to young for the surgery. But the pain is starting to control more of my life each day. I am planning on trying to start family soon but I am unsure about the pain factor. Any advice about handling pregnancy with THR or without?????

Also, thanks for reminding me I am not crazy...my family and friends are as supportive as they can be but they don`t truly understand the pain..
