Hi, i was diagnosed with CHD when i was 17 after years of been told it was growing pains by my GP. I am now 35, i`ve had previous years of pills, physio, accupuncture, tens machines - all to no avail. I had a periacetabular osteotomy on my left hip when i was 27, which has`nt totally relieved the pain in that hip, but will prolong the life of it. This operation was not possible on my right hip as it was \"too far gone\" - the surgeons words! I have progressive OA in my right hip and cannot sleep on a night due to the pain which transfers into my back, the distance i can walk comfortably is becoming dramatically reduced. I am now awaiting total hip replacement, another daunting operation, but at the end of the day if it is going to improve my quality of life, i`m all for it.
