Unfortunately your X-ray was far too dark, and not readable. Could you try resending please? What diagnosis have you been given for the hip? Have you had injury? Did you have pain in the hip as a child (Perthe's disease)?
Whatever the diagnosis, you have a hard choice. Lose your independence, have a very expensive, disabling hip operation, and probably another in 15 years, and another 15 years after that, OR.... lose 50 pounds.
The choice is yours. Our weight loss page at C-H may help, but the bottom line is YOU have do decide. Pain +++ for the rest of your life, or lose 50 pounds.
Chicken bones extract, omega-3 fish oil, and daily mobilisation of your hip is what I would recommend. Plus a diet with virtually zero starch, no bread, no rice, no potatoes, no pasta, no cakes and sweetmeats, no cool drinks, no sugar. Or pain. Take your pick.
