I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left hip. A hip replacement is inevitable, but I hope to manage the pain (which has been getting worse this year) for a while, before facing surgery. I got my first infection on October 1 (16 days ago), hoping for some relief for my daughter's wedding that was on October 10. I regret to say that, so far, I am not feeling much relief at all. I have times that it feels ok, but as usual, after some activity, it is fatigued and sore again. I also have some new pain, which seems to be around the point of injection. Can anyone relate, or share some hope? I was really hoping to get a break from dealing with the hip issues, if only for a little while. I have moved my follow up appointment up a few days, to see what they say, but so far, their response to my questions have been pretty generic.
I am new to all of this so I appreciate hearing about your experience.
