ESR May raise in Many condition apart from infection, You should also contact a physician to rule out other causes of Raised ESR
Moreover even if there is infection Hip replacement can not be done right nw
I am more worried about whether she had developed osteonecrosis of femoral head, if she had developed it the right treatment is total hip replacement after ruling out cause of raised ESR
Please mail me latest X-Rays of hip Joint at to find out osteonecrosis of femoral head
