Well, i have a spinal condition called ankylosing spondylities (a type of fast porgession arthritis that causes bone fusion in my spine, and causes bad inflammation in other joints around your body like the shoulders, hips, knees, kneck etc..).. sadly. the imflmation worked its way down to my hip and i didn't get treatment fast enough (me being stubborn to go to the doctor) so it toally damaged my joint. i do regret not going to the doc right away because the situation could have had a better outcome.
although, my hip has improved a lot over the past 5 months but i still have along way to go before it gets even better. its a slow progress (i just gotta keep walking every day, buld up muscle around my hip, do stretches to loosen my hip joint)
