I am currently 25 year old female. I was diagnosed at age of 3 with LCPD in BOTH hips. I had major surgeries at age of 4 on my right hip. Currently I have seen 2 specialist about a hip replacement. First one wouldn't even talk to me about it because it is so complex he sent me to someone else. This dr said nothing is going to help and i have to wait until i can absolutely no longer walk. And that's it. That was 1 year ago. The pain keeps getting worse and my regular dr wants me to start physical therapy and all of these medicines to help thepain. I heardthat physical therapy could be worse for it. I have VERY LITTLE cartilage in my joint. The pain is unbearable 80% of my days. I have 2 little boys. My quality of life sucks. My question is has anyone done physical therapy with this sort of thing? Did it help or hurt worse? I want the surgery but the drs wont diot. I'm supposed to use crutches as much as possible but that is unbearable too. Anyone have any tips or advice that worked for you?
