I am 31 years old living with SCD. I have never had blood transfusions but always fall sick at-least every once in a month in rare cases once in three months. I was also advised for a total hips replacement when I was 14 years but Ignored the idea because I was too young according to my parents. At some points I started doing pretty well with the pains as I dont feel it but I do walk with a limp on my left leg. Meanwhile I just read about HYDROXYUREA and heard it is very reliable for treatment of SCD so kindly advise me on how to take and about my hips. Most times when I feel sharper pains I just take Diclofenac or Dolometa Pain.. Ikeja Lagos
