I have been diagnosed with trochanteric bursitis supposedly caused by the
underlying problem of an arthritic hip. I have seen another website where
many people have written about how miserable they continue to be with
"tb", even after all sorts of interventions, including several steroid
injections. I'm 51 and really don't like the idea of replacing a hip
joint, but I also don't relish the idea of being in this constant pain. I
am hopeful that physical therapy can help, but also realize how bad my
joint is.

My question is this: Has anyone out there had the same problem of
tb/osteoarthritis and found relief with the hip replacement? Thank you.
