What they are referring to is probably osteoarthritis, which is damage cause by either normal wear and tear on the joint. Or as in your case, the joint injury altered the way the joint functions, leading to accellerated and possibly premature wearing out of the bearing surfaces of the hip. If the smooth, cartilage cushioned ball and socket bearing surfaces of the hip are damaged and uneven, osteoarthritis results. I hope this makes sense!

I believe there are things that can be done to hold off or prevent having to have hip replacement surgery, such as resurfacing, or injection of something like Synvisc which cushions the joint. Ask for a referral to an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hips. good luck!
