Hey....I understand your doctor telling you that you are too young. I am a letter carrier and had my right hip replaced at 46. The first ortho told my I was too young. I told him I would rather walk pain free from 46 to 66 and then sit in a wheel chair. I don't understand these doctors! There are no guarentee's in life. Can you imagine toughing out a very painfull hip for two more years then having some other medical problem that sidelines you or makes surgery more dangerous. Find a doctor that will work with you.IT IS YOUR BODY AND YOUR PAIN!
