I am 32 yo and have been diagnosed with avascular necrosis of the hips. Which has been caused by my military service. My issue is I need to cut a few lbs before my doctor will do my first hip, in hopes of shortening the recovery period so they can turn right around and do the second one. My left hip has completely collapsed causing my left leg to be significantly shorter than my right, which is causing severe back pain. My doc has prescribed fentanyl 50 every 2 days with Norco 10 x3 or as needed. The narcotic cocktail only takes the edge off my lower back pain. I have also been advised to take Adipex 37.5 and Topiramate 25 to assist with the weight loss factor. I have a high threshold for pain but am toeing my limit. In addition to all the above I am on the south beach diet and have severely decreased mobility. I am looking for any advise or info anyone can offer!!!

Thang you for your assistance.
