At 22, I was diagnosed with Tenosynovitis in my left wrist, surgery was prescribed but I didn't go for it. I relaxed the wrist for months and use it only when necessary, the swelling is not as bad as it was and I don't feel pain anymore. Now, at 24, it's early osteoarthritis in both hips, though I feel the pain only in the left hip. A GOPD consultant once asked if I had any kids (I'm a female) and I said no, her facial expression made me uneasy as if it would affect child-bearing. I'm scheduled to meet with the the surgeon on Tuesday and I want to go prepared without self-pity or feeling shocked. Please, if you can, tell me what I'm likely to hear and how this can affect other areas of my life.
