Unfortunately the only thing that will ease this pain is THR. I would urge you to find a surgeon who specialises in younger, active patients and get this done. The longer you wait and more impact all this pain and limping around will have on other areas of your body. Worst case, your hip will collapse. As Layla says, most of us returned to doing all the activities we enjoyed before all that pain set in. Get this done now so that you can enjoy your dream job.
