Suggest alternate non surgical remedy for hip arthritis

I am Dr.Ramesh Babu, Ph.D in law. Practicing High Court Advocate.
I was treated for Kochs right hip in 1978 when I was 20 years old. Problems at that time were weight loss, high fever, passing pain from right hip to toe, narrowing of bone space. Put on ATT (Pass granules) Steptopenciline and traction for six months. ESR was very high in 2nd hour. Recovered from fever and however the hip damaged and movements are restricted. Post treatment x-ray readings are sub-scondrol scelorsis, irregular artricular places, secondary oesteoarthritis, narrowing of bone space. Doctor suggested fro osteoactamy and fixing the joint at that time. I am managing for more than 3 decades without operation. Recently doctors advised for joint replacement. However comfortably managing with yoga and exercise and weight management. Slight limping is there. NO pain. In three decades the entire bone space is closed and head of hip fixed in the right pelvis. Rotating movements totally closed. Front and back movements are free. I am able to go by walk every year to SAbarimalai hills. I can walk 30 km without break. Recent x-ray show some cavities in the head of the right femer. (top of right hip). Though I am a living example to who can show how to maintain the hip arthritis without operation at times I opine expert advice from Doctors like you. I am now 54 years. Please suggest some more better ways of managing the present hip without operation.
Thanking you.

Dear Sir/Madam
I have gone through your query and read your symptoms.
first of all accept my congratulations on showing the world that the capabilities of the human body are far beyond what we can even think, and you are an example of that.
i would advise you not to go through any surgery as you are living a very productive and good painless life, you should think of it only when you have pain or other problems, one thing you should note, and that is to take care of your spine, because stiffness of hip can cause spinal pain.
Salute once again to your sprite.
I hope that answers your query. If you want any more clarification, contact me back.
Thanks

I have severe hip arthritis - bone on bone and including massive labral tear and need to have a hip replacement soon. I exercise 1 1/2 hours daily - I do heavy weights program deadlifts squats due to my conditioning for 2 months downhill skiing each year. My hip range of motion and strength are excellent however I have excruciating night time pain. Recently I started including 20 mins elliptical machine cardio (done daily on non strength training days) after my weight training sessions. it has significantly mitigated my night time pain and I wanted to know if this was due to increasing joint synovial fluid (on my MRI I was told I have little synovial fluid in the joint)

Hello Dr. Grief, my name is Rjnm,,ee and I was wondering your thoughts on hip arthritis. I am 47 y.o. female, 5 9 weighing 255 ( most I have ever weighed) with hip arthritis that has become worse over the last year to the point where I am having a hard time walking. I have just started aqua therapy yesterday and today was the worst pain I have had. One doctor is ready to do a total hip replacement and the other thinks I am too young.

A friend bought Volfenac diclofenaco gel from Mexico, which was given to me to try on my hip arthritis, and my pulled neck muscle. Seems to work very well. I have looked for indications/interaction with other drugs/and so on. Is there another form of this in the U.S.A., that doesn t cost over $100??
