I am a 30 yr old female with severe bilateral dysplacia that had gone undiagnosed until I was 27. I am married to a very suportive and loving husband and we have 3 dogs and 3 cats. My hips always hurt, they clicked when I was growing up, and I have a very swayed back. I had restricted range of motion. By the time I was 20 my hips hurt very badly and it felt like they were "giving away" and that would cause me to trip and fall. I was told by my FORMER Dr. that x-rays are to expensive and showed me the door. At 27 I finally made an appt. with an orthapedic surgon and we found out I had severe bilateral Developmental Dysplacia and that all the cartlidge was gone and I had severe arthritus and needed 2 total hip replacements, I was too far gone for a PAO. 3 yrs later I have both my hips replaced and am recovering.
