CINDY, I HAD HIP ARTHROSCOPY IN NOV, 99. MY SURGEON WAS TRYING TO BUY ME TIME BEFORE I NEEDED A THR. I WAS LIKE YOU AND HAD TO BE ON CRUTCHES FOR 5 MONTHS. AT 46, I WAS TOLD I WAS TOO YOUNG TO HAVE A THR. THE ARTHROSCOPY WAS A WASTE OF TIME. IT FAILED, I HAD MORE PAIN, AND NEARLY HAD A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN. IN MAY, I HAD A THR. FROM DAY ONE, THE ONLY PAIN I FELT WAS THE INCISION PAIN. IT HAS BEEN 7 MONTHS SINCE MY SURGERY, AND OTHER THAN A LITTLE MUSCLE PAIN I AM DOING GREAT. EVE
