I have osteoarthritis of the hips and there are time the shooting pains down my legs is really a problem . I do not like to take any medication but sometime I don't have much of a choice if I want to make it through the day. Some days are worse than others by far. I need surgery but am not in a position to have it done till the end of the year because of work demands. I know not taking any is best but I sometime just need relief for a while. Anything directing me to information on the matter would be appreciated.

Has anyone had the Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure done in the USA . I would like to have some feedback?
I have been diagnoded with Ostioarthitis of the hips (Advanced) I am probably going to have hip surgery in 2007. The Birmingham hip resurfacing proceedure was recently approved by the FDA and is said to be much better than conventional hip replacement for someone like myself who is rather young and active. I am 52 and figure I have had the OA for about 10 years before being diagnosed recently. I would like to hear from anyone who might have had the procedure done.2 AnswersMen's Health1 decade ago
How long can I expect the ringing in my ears to remain because I have been taking Ibeuprofene for several year
If I stop taking the pain killer will the ringing go away ever ? I read that the ringing comes from long term use of I beuprofene.4 AnswersMedicine1 decade ago
I am looking for holistic medicine treatment for orthioarthitis . Looking for chat rooms on the subject?
I have orthioarthritis of the hip and it is begining to affect my leg strenght. I have difficulty moving my legs under certain conditions. I am young and do not want to have hip replacement surgery . I am looking for feedback on other options such as holistic approaches to offsetting the problem which I would hope would put off the inevitable, hip surgery. Any feedback would be appreciated. I would like to hear from anyone with experience with hip resurfacing which I understand is better than a complete hip replacement. I work as a maintenace mechanic and am concerned that the surgery would not enable me to continue my trade.
