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….
