My 1st post. Was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of my right knee about 6-7 years ago, had an arthroscopy and loose bone was removed. Started on an exercise bike initially and 2-3 years ago started regular swimming (2000 metres a time 3-5 times a week) plus yoga 3-4 times weekly. Started with constant daily right hip pain 16 months ago and X-rays and MRI scan show osteoarthritis in right hip. Due to Covid disruptions eventually got a corticosteroid injection 3 weeks ago which was magic for first 3 days. All the pain has come back now, leg gives way and the pain is the length of my leg, am limited to swimming alone and strong medication, what else can I do?
