Arthritis?

Another visit to an orthopedic doctor and still no answers. The pain in my left hip has been treated with a cortisone shot. A week or two later my left hip still hurt but my right hip had become very painful. So I had a cortisone shot in my right hip. The shot did not help. Now I’m left with what I consider severe pain in my right hip.

I have been to a couple orthopedic doctors and I believe I have found one I like. He has no real idea why my hip x-rays show mild/moderate arthritis and I am in as much pain as I am. He has ordered an MRI and suggested that I use a cane. He is not the first person to recommend the use of a cane but when your as stubborn as I am it sometimes takes a kick in the head.
