Pregnancy and osteoarthritis
I'm new here! I had hip dysplasia as a child which required a couple of surgeries to fix. This has lead to me recently being diagnosed with right hip osteoarthritis (although I have been in pain and ignoring it for a couple of years!). I am wondering if anyone has any experience with young osteoarthritis (I'm 27) and more specifically any advice re pregnancy. I'm awaiting an appointment with orthopaedics as my physio has done all she can, but with the pain and stiffness I currently experience, the thought of pregnancy scares me. The thought of needed a hip replacement before even having a baby scares me even more! I'm pretty active and was running half marathons until March, when I finally gave into the pain.
Does anyone have any experience with this? A lot of the information I've come across relates to RA. Any advice would be really appreciated :)
