Wow, I just found this thread. It hit’s very close to home.  I don’t do Crossfit but I do follow Starting Strength.  I had LTHR on July 20, 2004 and RTHR on June 5, 2012.  I’ve been squatting since about the end of August, 2012.  I also do deadlifts.  I never did deadlifts until after both replacements.  I worked up to 315 lbs which kind of freaked me out a little bit so I haven’t tried to go higher.

Regarding how to know when to get surgery… you’ll know.  There will be no doubt in your mind.  The pain eventually get’s to the point where you’re left with two options.  Either you suicide or THR. Seriously.

I would love to share experiences with others who have had THR.
