Have OA for the last three years in my right hip.
Seeing the specialist again next month and would like some advice.
Have had a bone density scan and will get these results when I go next month.
Specialist seems reluctant to replace the hip at present. Says I am too young! (58 years old) and that it will probably need to be replaced again.
OH physio says I still have too much movement to be considered for the operation. However, I am finding the pain debilitating, and have had to start taking time off work because of it.
Collegues who have had the op tell me to push the doctor to get it done. Possibly a financial decision by the NHS?
I see from the forum that lots of people younger than me have had it done.
Can anyone recommend insoles?
My big toe is starting to hurt alarmingly!
