I am 39 years old and was very interested in your comments regarding your recovery because of your age. I am very active and want to keep it that way. Because I have been dealing with a bum wheel since age 7 (Legg-Perthes)I know when my activity is too much. Recently,my pain has really affected my range of motion and sleep. My main concern is longevity of the replacement and the greatest risks associated with younger patients. What finally tipped you over the edge?
