Have had several injections of Kenalog, one worked six months, the most recent isn't working as well. Anyone have any luck with any other pain meds to help?

I got my diagnosis a month and a half ago. It started out with a constant piping from my left hip. Then it started to hurt… so I to Doctors Care and they said I broke my hip. Come to find out after an MRI I have 20% collapse on my left hip and 80% on my right. They gave me Narco 5's 4 times a day. I can't walk. They do nothing. So I was referred to pain management which I start this week. I need my legs back. I have stayed off my feet as much as possible. Gave up my job, and I am going crazy just laying around. If anyone knows of a " treatment" that isn't surgery. Such as vitamins, or a special french soup , I don't care please tell me !! I will try anything. I'm only 35. I don't want a Fake Hip yet.
