I am a 53 YO female and have had a series of upsetting health issues, the worst being the arthritis I am suffering from in my left hip 17 years after an automobile accident and subsequent surgery to repair the pelvis.  I have read and researched much, spending much time trying to figure out if there is any hope for my situation other than a hip replacement.  I purchased Dr. Davis audible book "Undoctored", and just now sent for the paper copy which I have not yet received.  Following are some facts...can anyone help me please?

I have had stem cell treatment on that hip, which helped only a little
I do daily exercises that help only a little
I take the gucosamine/chondroitin supplement; it doesn’t seem to help
I am on a no wheat/ low carb diet, and have lost 30 lbs. within the last year and a half, and need
to lose another 35 lbs.

I am really tired of the pain, and trying SO hard and only getting minimum relief.  I am not looking for pain relief for a few days or even months, but something that will help (80% relief) or even a cure.  I tried Dr. Fife’s regimen from his book "The New Arthritis Cure" with very little results.  I want nothing to do with products or procedures that only mask the symptoms.  My friends tell me to get my hip replaced, which is what the docs say too.  I am starting to have pain in my knees also.  Does osteoarthritis spread from joint to joint?  And then can I expect hip replacements, knee replacements, shoulder replacements, etc...

THE BIG QUESTION TO ME IS:  IS HIP REPLACEMENT THE ONLY THING THAT WILL HELP?

I already started taking the atorvastatin every other day instead of every day...am I going to fall over dead soon?  I’ve been doing that for about a week and feel fine.  

Thanks for all your help...I’m impressed!

Hi Bob, I would appreciate it if you could give me your opinion on my numbers for T3, T4 and TSH.
