Its been almost 15 years since my first SCFE srugery. My hip pain has really changed in the last year after being pregnant and having my first baby. I am going to see a joint replacement specialist in a month to talk about a hip replacement. Over the years I have developed a mild case of scoliosis and my range of motion is absolutley non existent in my left hip. It is so frustrating and I haven't even been able to wokr out lately because my hip hurts so bad.
I have seen an orthopedic surgeon before and he told me that basically once the pain has started to effect my daily life, I can't do what I normally do anymore, then it is time.
I feel like i'm there and I was curious out of all of you who have had hip replacemtns post SCFE surgery, how old you were and what your experieince has been.
Any doctors on here have suggestions about timing and longevity ofhip replacements these days?
Thank you so much! any responses would be awesome for my peace of mind.
