I was suffering with hip pain about two and a half years ago, following a very long process( the NHS at it's worst) I eventually had a x-ray in April 2016 and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis. A combination of lower limb exercise classes, naproxen and Co-codamol has left me with a clicky but pain free hip, no longer need the pain killers.

As regards it being the PCa, I was told that mets are unusual if the PSA is below 20, I am sure there may be exceptions.

Thanks Chris

Had problem with knees. X-rays confirmed suspected arthritis. Full body scan (for PCa) showed arthritis additionally in other joints that were not painful or stiff.
