New to this so here’s my story. Former sportsperson who was diagnosed with OA at 35 and had a double arthroscopy the same year. Op on the right revealed substantial damage to the cartilage in the right hip and there has been a steady decline since. Have been recommended for a hip replacement but trying to hold off for as long as possible due to my age (38). Have all the typical symptoms.....crunching/clicking, reduced mobility, flare ups that require pain killers. Wondering is there many here that have had the replacement at a young age and how they are doing.
