Michal - I am a 24 yr old and have had Rhuemetoid Arthritis since 13. I had both hips replaced at 18 and both knees replaced at 23. I don't know how much pain you are in but for me it was the only option. Just because your young don't let people talk you out of getting something replaced if it is to the point where you can no longer stand the pain. What's the point of waitng if you can't walk because of it. I am glad that I had mine donee and I realize that I probably will have to have them replaced again in 15 -20 yrs. Oh well, at least I can walk now. I am not sorry that I had mine done.
