Anesthesia for Cortisone Injection - Safe?

I have genetic hip dysplasia and deformities that are giving me a lot of trouble lately that px therapy just aren't helping anymore. As an effort to prolong my hip replacements (I know I sound like an old lady, but I'm only 27!) they want to inject my hip joint with cortisone. I'm really concerned about the side effects since I'm bfing. I plan to call my doc tomorrow to find out for sure which medication they will use and then call my OB to see if it is safe for bfing, but I wanted ask here in the mean time if anyone has any exprience with this??

I DO NOT want to go through with this because they have to sedate me since it is such a major procedure being the hip joint (I don't think you have to be sedated for other areas). I don't even know how I feel puting the steroid into my body either especially since we haven't decided weather or not to vax DS, kwim?? So complicated, and to top it off there is pressure to get it done next week before the end of the year for insurance. WWYD??

I am not sure but I do know my Mom injured her hip while running last year and had to get a few cortisone injections and she was awake for them. Painful but the pain didnt last, kwim?

Im not sure what meds they would use to sedate you.
