Hi Everyone hope someone can give me some insght/help. Im 36 and had PD when i was 7 which was a direct result of both hips dislocated at 2. I have my Left pined which was removed when i was 9 (i think). At 11/12 i had the growth carrlidge removed from my right knee to allow for the left left being shorter. Lived perfectly well up until around 4 years ago when hip got very sore and movement was limited, docs stated dejenerative arthritus and perscriped me pain killers. Reasonably ok walk up an hour every day with dog, hill walked etc also regular attenders of the gym high impact classes such as body combat spin etc. All ok up until about 8 months ago and the pain and now ramped up massively to the point its unbearable. I no longer exercise walking is very painful. Movement is very limited extremely difficult to put sock on and painting my left toe nails is now a thing of the past. I was referred from the pain clinic to s consultant whom which said he wouldnt do a hip Replacement basically i asked for it. He has made me get raises in my shoes and im waiting which could take 6-8 months for a steroid injectioin. That is from now, i have already been waiting from last October. The pain in my left leg to me is hard to describe, my hip would give way if standing, there is now a 22mm difference between left and right leg. Right leg now considerably bigger than left. Its dull ache then would shoot up and down from bum to calf, is this normal. Sleeping is awkward basically one side of the bed had gone completely bally as i move around so much at night to get comfy. I was also waiting on a phsyi with the nhs i waited that long i decided to go myself £36 for 30 mins every week i cant keep up to that. She worked with the verdibrays on my back to loosen them as i feel by back and left leg is very very tight. Getting in a car is a nightmare, walking up stairs is hard as i can only use my right leg. It helps for around a week but then basically go backs to normal if not even worse. Any one any pointers how can i talk my doc into giving me the HR? I do take pain killers however taking 8 tablets a day isnt how i want my life to pan out and whats concerns me more the last of movement. Im concerned movement will get worse as time goes on. Im gettng married in May and our plan is to have children worried as this lack of movement will severly affect this.
