Intra-articular steroid injection in hip

Anyone have this done? Probably not, since not many people this age have arthritis in the hip, but I thought I'd give it a shot. Hoping for some reassurance and calm vibes. My procedure is at 7:30am. 17 hours.

I've read so many scary things. Especially scary is the outbreak of meningitis that over a dozen people got from these injections locally over the past few months (two have died). And the risk of joint infection. And necrosis. And tendon rupture. I should really stop reading online.
