Rebecca the Cortisone Jab I had has made no difference at all. I dont know if this could be a good thing as it may mean the pain I get while sat is not coming from the hip joint. I went to see a new physio last Friday and he seems to think my hip is fine and the contant pain I am having around my groin/hip could be from a back problem causing the femoral nreve to be irritated. I start my new physio treatment next week. Hope you dont have to wait long for your scan.
I had my injection in to the joint 10 days ago. It has made no difference at all to the pain I get while sat down at work. The pain goes at the weekend and I have no problems walking. Dont really know what to do now. I will be 9 months post op in a few weeks. Cycling and running seem like a thing of the past. I would give anything to be pain free.
Hi Rebecca. I will let you know after Friday how it goes. I did not get offered an MRI. I Think maybe because the surgeon checked my range in the joint and he said it was quite good. At least when I get the injection if it shifts the pain then he will know if the problem was the joint. If it does nothing then the it would seem the pain is a musclar issue. Rebecca are you still doing any stretches or physio on a daily basis ?
HI all. Not good news here I am now 8 months post op on my right hip and it feels like it is getting worse.. I have no pain on walking and no limp. However as soon as I sit down at my desk or go to bed it just aches so much and I get a throbbing pain. I started to take Naxporen again 2 weeks ago and it has made no differnce at all. I am starting to think that something is not quite right. I have a steroid injection in to the hip joint next Friday so at least that is someting to look forward to!! My life for the last 18 months has just been focused on this horrible hip pain, My consultant said to me to try and not focus on it to much however that is quite hard when you are in pain all day and tablets dont work ??
