I've had a lifetime of struggle with a congenital hip, finally at the age of 47 I had to give in and have a total hip replacement this was to be a new lease of life to me! The only warning was NOT to lengthen my leg from a professor, you guessed it the surgeon in his wisdom ignored that fact and lengthened my leg which has now left me in chronic pain from my back down. It's so frustrating having to have someone in to do even the simplest of things that in a previous life I'd do in the blink of an eye, thank heavens for my wonderful wife without whom I'd be lost! Just like to say a BIG THANK YOU to her and all the unpaid carer's out there!
