The anaestethetic/corticosteroid injection relieved the worst of the pain in my hip. Didn't even feel the shot go in, just the fluid getting pushed through. It's temporary relief but so needed. I had a few functional hours (yay, grocery shopping and cleaning), and was able to get a little much-needed sleep. The radiologist told me there was no need discontinue NSAIDs for an injection (which means I made myself miserable for nothing and my PCPs office did squat.) Started on diclofenac when I got home and am already noticing an improvement. From now on, they can try to pry my anti-inflammatory out of my cold dead hands.
Anaesthetic is wearing off, so now the waiting and seeing starts as to whether there will be lasting relief. The first steroid injection didn't help, so they used twice the dose this time. From the sounds of the ortho this is the only option left to manage my hip pain, so I'm anxious as heck.
Anyone here with any miracle stories to share? I know I already tried to crowdsource info on this here, but would appreciate any additional feedback and support. This has to work. It has to. It's yuppy stuff, but I'm trying to focus on positive thinking and sending "good energy" to my hip. How do you pass the time when you're trying to keep things light and keep your mind off the pain?
After 15 years together and 13 married with two children involved, I found out my husband had an affair and even after that kept looking for a side piece. I am at a total loss. I gave everything to my marriage and kids. I have lost my sense of self. I have been crying non-stop but at the same time still thinking of catering to him. I'm pissed but after 15 years I need to start putting me first...
I still talk to my EX boyfriend even though we broke up 8 months ago. He even moved on and found someone else and when she broke his heart he wanted to be friends with me again and confide in me about their issues. Now that he is over her he thinks its ok to go back to treating me like shit while he finds another woman to be with. Like he wants to be able to talk to me like I am one of his guy...
