Arrow Unbelievably Sharp Pain in Hip (buttock) area

When I walk I get a severe pain, all most like a spasm in my left hip area. It's like a sharp, quick, pulses of intense pain shooting in my buttocks.
Sometimes I can walk completely pain free for a few steps, then all of a sudden - ZING - a stabbing sharp pain.
It is not a continuous pain, it comes in short bursts about 1 second apart when walking. Doesn't happen when I sit.

The pain is unbelievably painful I can't walk normal and I feel like a cripple. Have to stop, pause, and try to walk again.
It is getting to be more frequent than not.
After a while I get a knife-like pain in the groin.


Now for my back ground,
in March I started to have pain in my hip.
Went to two Orthopedic Doctors and they said I need a hip replacement ( and knee - which I knew about)
Had an several x-rays and a MRI done. Which stated Left hip arthritic process, mostly likely Osteoarthritis.
Focal Osteochondral fracture at the femoral head surrounding the marrow edema.
Patchy marrow edema of the femoral neck and joint effusion with synovitis.

I am scheduled for a hip replacement in four weeks.
I can't take the pain any longer.
What can I do?
Pain medication doesn't help.
