Hip replacement worries - analysis paralysis

@mamie You mention that the surgery would be complicated but then that the doctors said they would not operate. I hope you can find a really good doctor who is confident and can do it and relieve you of your pain and inability to do many things. It does seem as if hip replacements are less troublesome than knee replacements on people with normal hip problems so hopefully it would work well for you too.

You really do have a dilemma with PT.

Hi, @contentandwell Thanks for your thoughts. Actually the doctors I saw several years ago did not want to do the operation because I had no pain. I just recently (about a month ago) saw two orthos and each said they would do it but had opposite opinions on what approach as well as PT. So I went from no one wanting to do it because I had no pain/joint was fusing to now two docs willing to do it but giving me opposite advice. I guess nothing is simple.
