If the pain is so unbearable that she has difficulty walking it is probably a good idea to have it done sooner rather than later as the hip joint just progressively becomes more damaged the longer she struggles to walk. Please make an appointment with an orthopaedic specialist who specialise in hip surgery- he would be the best to give an opinion.
