No hip replacement
I am 64, have always maintained a healthy lifestyle which included, running, hill walking & going to the gym.
I knew about the OA in one of my hips but X Ray shows it in both.
But I was suddenly rendered debilitated following a particularly strenuous bout of squat exercises & have been in pain ever since! XRay shows OE in the knee & GP believes damaged or fractured cartilage - but tells me that knee replacement is out of the question due to my age & lifestyle!!
