I am a very active 68, and was diagnosed with arthritis in both hips 3 years ago - the right one is much more advanced.The cartilage has worn very thin, so that I have developed bone spurs in the rght hip. Although I have a pronounced limp, I don't really experience any pain ,I just feel stiff when I get up from sitting for a long time, and feel it when I turn in bed, plus I can't move my right leg as extensively as I used to. I am having physiotherapy to relax the muscles and I have a programme of exercises at the gym to strengthen my butt, inner and outer thighs and legs. I do a lot of classes at the gym and go hiking too. My doctor says I have to decide when I want a hip replacement but I really don't know what the right moment is - I am in NO hurry to have it done but I don't want to leave it too late either..?? Is there a TOO LATE? What is the general opinion and experience?
