I can't believe I am even flippin' considering this as an option. Really? I mean having somebody breaking my pelvis in three places so as to give me a hip joint...sounds just...barbaric!!
According to my MRA results, the cartilage looks surprisingly good...great rather. Like what the heck?! I'd rather not have a decision. But now that I have a decision. Do I want to look like this:
I do not know at the moment. I have started to get my crap together to send to a world re-known hip surgeon who does the PAO. And if he agrees with my current surgeon, I am afraid I will have to submit and have it done. Although I would MUCH rather get a replacement for current pain levels, but is this the best thing to do in the future? I need to be able to walk when I'm 70! But I also need to function now. There are no guarantees that the PAO would work either. I am so incredibly confused. I wish I had seen a PAO surgeon a LOOOOONG time ago!
The only thing I know now is that I want my life back.
