I AM A 32 YEAR OLD MALE THAT WAS DIAGNOISED WITH LCPD WHEN I WAS 13 YEARS OLD BY MY CHIROPRACTOR. I WENT TO SEE HIM FOR MY EXTREME LOWER BACK PAIN. I WAS DIAGNOSED TOO LATE TO ACTUALLY DO ANYTHING TO REPAIR IT. TODAY I LIVE WITH EXTREME PAIN IN MY GROIN, KNEE, AND HEEL. I DONT WISH THIS UPON ANYONE. I AM TRYING TO PUT OFF A HIP REPLACEMENT BUT SOME DAYS THE PAIN IS SO INTENSE I GET CLOSE TO GOING THROUGH WITH IT. I WAS VERY ACTIVE IN MY YOUNGER DAYS PLAYING FOOTBALL, WRESTLING, BASEBALL ETC.. AND THIS IS WHY I AM PROBABLY IN SO MUCH PAIN NOW AT 32. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SPEAK WITH ANYONE WHO IS IN THE SAME BOAT AS ME AND CAN OFFER ADVICE TO PUT OFF THE HIP REPLACEMENT. AND IF ANY PARENTS WANT TO CONTACT ME PLEASE GO AHEAD AND DO SO. I ALSO HAD 3 OPEN HEART SURGERIES WHEN I WAS YOUNGER AND I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT IF MY CARDIAC CATH HAD ANYTHING TO DO WITH CREATING THE LCPD IN MY LEFT HIP WHERE THE CATH WAS DONE (LEFT GROIN). DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS IS A POSSIBILITY? I HAVE BEEN DOING RESEARCH ON LCPD SINCE I WAS DIAGNOSED AS A TEENAGER. I PROBABLY KNOW MORE THAN MOST DOCTORS ABOUT IT. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN IF YOU CAUGHT IT EARLY BECAUSE I DONT WISH THE PAIN I ENCOUNTER ON A DAILY BASIS ON ANYONE. IT HAS BEEN HARD TO KEEP JOBS THAT REQUIRE ME TO BE ON MY FEET ALL DAY OR ANY TYPE OF PHYSICAL LABOR. AND MANY EXERCISES CAUSE NUMBNESS IN THE LEG WITH THE LCPD HIP. SO LETS SHARE IDEAS AND STORIES. STAY STRONG EVERYONE AND PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED ANYTHING.

Hi. I'm from Vegas too, I don't currently live there though. Anyway, I think you're posting this in the wrong area, at least if you're looking for your own answers. I don't know anything about what you're going through, but I don't see why you would put off the hip replacement if it would help you. Sorry you're in so much pain. I'm 25 with arthritis so kinda get the pain part of it anyway. Anyway I would recommend you post this in a different community. There is a community for it, but it only has 1 member so I don't know how much help you'll get. Good luck though.
