I am 39 years old male.
I am diagnosised with left hip joint synovitis with superimposed secondary osteoarthritis.I have been told by allopathy doctors that blood circulation in hip joint not there and this is a permanet one and needs to be operated.But, they suggested to go for a surgery after few years because the life of replacement will be 15 years.
