I'm not really sure what the point is of your post. It's very difficult to read for one but also confusing as to what you're asking.

Obviously you had a reaction to the medications so stopping them is the right thing to do. There are all kinds of drugs out there for OA. Which one helps is a lot of trial and error and totally unpredictable. But that has nothing to do with whether or not your diagnosis is correct. We cannot tell you that. If you are questioning the diagnosis then the best thing to do is take your x-rays and MRIs to another orthopedic surgeon for confirmation.
