Thanks for writing to us,

According to your history you are most likely suffering from hip arthritis with degenerative spondylosis with disc bulge.

For mild chondromalacia you need calcium with vit d.,cartilage protecting medication,

spinal disc bulge if not compressing nerve then can be treated conservatively.

Conservative treatment include medicines such as anti inflammatory drugs, calcium supplement . neurotropics.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Take care
