Glad to hear that went well. How have you been doing? I dont remember seeing an update in your other thread. Have they narrowed down a cause for the pain?
Ah, well, kind of. They found a labral tear (the ligament that stabilizes the hip). However, it's posterior (in the back), which is a rare location. And my pain is in the front (but is typical labral tear pain). So the surgeon is only 50/50 on whether that's causing my pain. We tried a steroid shot in the bursa last week (just under the skin). It only helped for a couple hours. So we scheduled this joint injection. If this doesn't work, I may be looking at surgery in a few months.

I had my infusion and chemo on Friday (for the Crohn's) and that helped the SI joint pain a LOT, so that tells me that pain was Crohn's-arthritis-related. But it did nothing for the hip pain. I'm also doing PT twice a week.

Re: Intra-articular steroid injection in hip

I had a 'cortisone flare' last night once the anesthetic wore off. I literally thought I was dying. It was horrible. Unbelievable pain, dizzy, disoriented. I knew it was a chance (30%) so I wasn't too surprised, but I was shocked at how bad the pain was. All I could do was sit there and cry. But, I finally went to sleep and woke up at midnight and it was gone. Now I'm back to my pre-injection hip pain, which is like heaven compared to last night. It could take a few days for the steroids to kick in.
