The good news is that once the hips need replaced, it's a good prognosis. A lot of people can go on to have a decent quality of life. The consultant couldn't give me a time frame on when that might be needed - somewhere between 5 and 15 years seems likely.

I've just recently taken up golf - I find it very difficult but a good challenge. I'm shite at the moment but hit the odd decent shot. Need to get more consistent with the good shots.

I need a hip replacement (I’m 27). Left hip. Had a cortisone injection that completely took the pain away, wore off and had another before lockdown but fucked it digging out my epic patio. Went back to see the doc last week and he’s put me on co codamol and some other pill to see if it works, If not I’ll do another injection to buy time before prob having to have the Op next year. Speaking to others that have done it mate said was walking I’m the next day, running in 3 weeks and golf within a month. The procedures are much better these days. Have you had an MRI ? Mine showed almost no cartilage on left side. Do you have private medical ? There’s a year wait for the opp if not apparently.

Get the injection though, can be a game changer for up to 6 months

Do you have oesteoarthritis as well?

I have private healthcare via my work and had an MRI. The consultant said my right hip is more worn away but I only have pain in the left side. He said I'll eventually need an Op but that could be anywhere up to the next 15 years.

I often have pain down my leg and around my groan. Luckily it's not always too bad. I had a couple weeks there where I felt fine. Sore today though after some stretching and exercises.

I was prescribed naproxen to take which is an anti inflammatory. I will be getting some advice on my diet as well as I was told I should avoid certain foods.

I have arthritis, I was in naproxen which I think helped more than the pills I have now. I’ve not had the groin pain but I know it’s common for hip issues.

I have CAM hip impingements, which might explain how the arthritis started. Unfortunately the surgeon doesnt think key hole surgery would help me as I'm not really suffering from the sharp pain symptoms that surgery would normally help.

Thinking back about 3 years, it all started with a really sharp pain near my groan on the left side that I thought was a damaged hip flexor. I was in quite a bit of pain sitting down and standing up.

My Dr initial did fuck all and it was only when I went back after a further two years that I got an xray and eventually an MRI (and at which point my symptoms has changed).

I have irregular shaped hips and it’s wear and tear from sport over the years that’s got rid of the cartilage, it’s now bone on bone so pretty painful

Sounds like I have the same condition but maybe a few years behind. Bone on bone sounds bad mate - hope you get it sorted.

I got it due to my genetics. Certainly not from sports as I didnt do much when I was young. One game of 5s a week and moderate gym work.
