AVN stage 3 means it's already advanced disease. Now core decompression has no role. Best option for you is to bear as much pain as possible. Keep doing exercises. You will need total hip replacement soon. It would be better to delay the surgery as long as possible. Once you feel that now you can't handle the pain, go for hip replacement. There is no alternative to hip replacement. You are young guy, so choose best implants and go for surgery. If you can show x Rays and MRI them I can tell you more.
