Im a 40 year old male that had surgery at age 10 and the doctors told me I would have to have a full hip replacement by the age of 20 and now after 30 years of living with this I still wonder if today will be that day I will need that hip replacement. For the first 10 years I worried about a hip replacement and that didn't happend the next 10 years after that I worried if I got Aids because of the blood tranfursion they gave me during the 8 hour surgery ( 1 out of 2 I had ) now ten more years from my first surgery i worrie if my daughter or son will get this, sence the doctors really don't know how I got it in the first place. Like all I have daliy pain and have learned to just deal with it. But one thing is sure when I first got it or should I say when I first felt the pain. That is a pain you never forget. I always tell women that having a baby is less pain full then the pain I get form this disease. I had to go with my bones grinding each other day in and day out for over 30 days before 1 out of 10 diffrent doctors looked at me and all had there own diffrent saying on what was wrong with me. In closing to all I feel your pain every day But I do thank God that I can still walk.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
