I have been in severe pain for years and finally received a diagnosis. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I am only 42 years old. I also had a left hip replacement 8 years ago and the doctor told me that within 10 years my right one would need to be done. Well, it is time. The xrays showed that it is bone on bone and there is absolutely no cartledge left in my right hip. My portion, after insurance is $3000. I saw the xrays, and it actually looked like the hip joints were fused together. I'm tired of being in pain and I know that having this surgery will help significantly with the pain because my left hip doesn't hurt anymore. Any assistance will go towards this surgery so that I can be pain free, at least in my hips. Anything over the co pay will go towards living expenses while I am out of work for recovery. Thank you in advance for your support!
