And keep up with the strength training it really does help the joints. And it also means a much faster recuperation from surgery. Having had a bilateral hip replacement, I know. Put in the time on the rehab post-surgery and you will be up and running - literally!

Suffering from OA is something only another with OA can understand.
I had DDD surgery and a long recuperation. Didn't realize I had tendonitis, but thanks to a wonderful PT in San Diego who used his hands on me to rub out the tendonitis, it finally went away, and I had a lot of strengthing of my quads which finally let me walk with a cane without pain...but it took over eight months.
We'll probably all wind up bionic, but hey, look at Jane Fonda. Two hip and a knee, and she's back to making more exercise videos. That's a nice thought when I can finally walk ten minutes or stand for ten. But I'm getting stronger every day.
I thought I had hip bursitis, but the symptoms were still there after a cortizone shot, so bone on bone hip is the problem. Thank God this can all be corrected in time.
I need to read more of your emails, sorry I just jumped in. I'm just excited to realize there is a group of others who have this problem and we can discuss it.
