THR with dysplasia?

Hi everyone,

I would love to hear if anyone has/had dysplasia going into THR.  I was diagnosed with pretty bad dysplasia (way too shallow acetabulum) and that’s why the cartilage wore away in the joint.  Bone on bone now, and told I need a THR.  Early in the process and haven’t seen the surgeon yet, but I’d love to hear experiences.  Mainly I want to know if they had to reform the pelvis/acetabulum in addition to the THR.  I know everyone’s situation is different but I would love to hear of peoples experiences….

ps I am a 62 year old woman who has run for 40 years, including 25 marathons.  Not running terrifies me, and I know my dysplasia complicates everything….
