Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided , it seems that you have degenerative disease of your hip joint which has been shown in the Xray.

You may benefit by consultation with a orthopedician, who can evaluate your condition and your fitness for a hip replacement surgery.

Other conservative measures may help only to a small extent, as the condition is progressive and you will definitely benefit by surgery.

I hope this helps.
