Please, anyone else with FROZEN HIP?

I have had a hard time finding other patients with true frozen hip.  Mine is 3.5 years old now.  I have done A.R.T, physical therapy for years, acupuncture, osteopathy and seen multiple orthopedic surgeons.  My right hip is STUCK.  It will only externally rotate 35% outward.  It impedes a lot of my daily exercise and life. 

If I sit in the "butterfly" position  -- the left leg is fully externally rotated, but the right is upright and stuck at about 30% rotation. I also feel a giant knot in the right gluteus maximus / piriformis area, but I think this is just a secondary condition from my long term frozen hip. 

Wondering if anyone out there has had frozen hip for YEARS, then seen improvement?  

Thank you in advance for reading this.
