Just going slightly mad and need some advice from you lovely people
I have OA and avascular necrosis in one hip due to a childhood disease.
I had an op on my hip aged 12 and 15. For the past 15 years i have walked with a limp, turned my leg out and curved at the waiste to componsate the pain in my hip. Im having a hip replacement on the next month.
My question is .....
Due to the leaning/compensating i have done is it likely i will get affected by arthritis is other joints (i have lots of pain in lower back and knee) or am i just at as much risk as someone not affected through childhood illness?!
