Severe pain in both hips, legs due to bursitis. How to relieve pain?

I am a female (age 58) experiencing severe pain from bursitis in both hips, which were replaced last August. I am on my feet all day as a teacher. I climb the stairs a lot and have recently resumed sexual activity. The pain in both legs is excruciating. Besides rest, ice, PT, and taking anti-inflammatories, anything else I can do?
