I'm sorry you are having to deal with this at such a young age. I have had family members who have had hip replacements with good to minimal success in pain relief and a long healing process too. My mother in law recently had a unit inserted in her back that blocks pain receptors in her back, but in her hip as well. It seems to have worked wonders for her. It is not real new technology, but apparently it's getting to be better. She is in Colorado. I don't know if there is anything like that where you are, but perhaps something to consider.
