Our expert says:
I'm not clear on what the hip problem is. As I read it, you have an issue with the toe, which is different from the hip problem. I gather than the toe issue has been dealt with, but I'm not sure what you mean that the x-rays had shown that "it" is caused by the toe? Your hip problem is caused by the toe, or is it something else?
And when you say there was a hip defect, what is it? I just think you need to find out for sure what the defect is, and whether it might be treatable, because you very rarely get a case where it's all or nothing, replacement or nothing. So my advice would be to seek out the opinion of a doctor in sports medicine, who can look at the hip independently, because there are too many factors currently clouding the issue.
