Young, Hip and Bionic

I am a 31 year old with a right and left total hip replacement (both with bone grafts).  Which occurred in October of 2016 and May of 2017 respectively.

After being told that I required a bilateral hip replacement I found it very hard to educate myself on what my experiences and expectations should be.  All the research and blogs out there were catered towards older individuals (obviously!) since someone my age rarely requires such measures.  Even the blogs done by ‘younger’ individuals (no offence) were still done by individuals in their 40’s or 50’s.  I couldn’t find a resource for someone my age or at my stage of life (i.e. pre-child bearing).

I am hoping that since I have now gone through part of this process that I could help others feel like they aren’t alone in this journey.

I hope this helps, and if it doesn’t, then at least it’s therapeutic for me.
