I am 27 and I have had hip pain for about 4 years. Today I was told that it was arthritis and I would need a hip replacement in 10 years. I'm devastated. Not only that but I was told that if I wanted children I would need to do it before the hip replacement.
Firstly I was told that it was a tear and could get fixed, now it's arthritis. I am still working and trying to get on with things but I was told that I should not be doing any impact exercise and I was told that walking any distance is a no no.
Now I really don't know what to do. How can I not walk?!
Anyway, I wanted to find somewhere that would be able to give me info and support and I am hoping this site will be it.
If anyone has any advise or could share anything I would be really gratefull.
