Default 99 Accord Rear Wheel Bearings

The noise made by my 1999 Accord LX (4 cyl 5-speed 192,500 miles) has been
diagnosed as rear wheel bearings. This has been going on for a few months.

Do I need to worry about repairing soon or will the noise get worse before
the hub unit completely fails? Will driving at sustained high speeds for
long periods make the problem get worse?

Thanks for ideas and repair suggestions.

=========================

There's TSB's here,

for the early Odyssey and for the Accord, I think. They can usually go
for a long time (in my experience with an early Odyssey) but you
wouldn't wan to go on holiday with your family. The hub / bearing
assembly is worth ~ $100 US at NAPA

If you don't change them, they can run dry and catch on fire.
