Self employed can take time off for operation and some doubt about current hip replacement items on market. Cortizone injections every four months to relieve some pain. Also taking Ostero paradine tablets 2 twice daily. Have heard there is new treatment in USA where they drill into hip and inject replacement tissue to strengthen hip? What else can I do Age 74 onset was at age 72. Also suffer ostero but get injections and take big doses of vitamin D as well.
