My wife is 30 years old and she has AVN in her right hip. 3years back we meet Dr. he had informed us that its deteriorated to Arthritis and we should do the hip replacement surgery when the pain will get unbearable. My wife is against the surgery. Off late the pain has increased and she has started to limp more. Are there any medicine which she can take to over come this pain? Is there any way around without the surgery?
