I went to the Doctor today, he said I'm still in the early stage. We are going to try cruches for the next three weeks. I started taking Glucosamine. He also told me there is another surgery to try. They make an incision on the side of my hip and drill some holes into the bone from the lower outside to the upper inside of the ball. This is to increase the blood flow to the effected area of the bone. He said that the success rate was not always that great but somtimes it does work and could keep a person from having a THR. I'll try to update in three weeks after I try the crutches and go back for acheckup. Thanks Teri for information.
