Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

I'm new to the board and here to look for anyone who has been through the same experience or has any advice.

I'm a 20 year old male and when I was 18 I had major surgical dislocation and re-sculpturing of the hips. I had my second one down in March of this year. I have been experiencing pains in the first operated hip and have had an MRI scan on it. I can now only lift the hip to 90 degrees and no further without having sharp pains. I have been given the results of my MRI and have found out that I have Osteoarthritis in that hip along with fluid in the joint.

What is the next course of action that they will do? I'm obviously too young to have full hip replacement (I hope!). I have been told that they could go in through keyhole to drain the fluid and to clean up the hip. What happens if this doesn't work though? I'm looking at worst case scenario and if all the steps fail what course of action would they take at such a young age?

Thanks for all your help.
