Hip, hip, hurray! Or hip pain away!

Finally got an appointment for tomorrow to get a steroid injection in my spine for the pain I've been having in my hip. Thank the good Lord, I don't need hip replacement, but sure am praying these injections will help. My husband had them several years ago and had a bad experience with the first one. The doctor caused a small leak of his spinal fluid and a few hours later, we thought my husband was going to die. It was so frightening. He couldn't speak or move. If the doctors at the hospital had connected the incident to the injection, he could have received a blood patch where a little of his blood would be injected into the original site and it would have stopped the leaking. Instead, he was in the hospital for several days until his body healed. Although, on the bright side, the shot did help the pain he had been having in his leg. I'm hoping for the pain relief without the spinal leak. I'll be at a different clinic and I know these things can happen. But my trust is in God and I know he will be with me, whatever happens. If you happen to think of me tomorrow, all prayers are greatly appreciated! Talk to you all soon.

I have hear of injections which last from six months to a year. It will surely beat taking pain killers every day. Yes , put your trust in God that everything will work out okay.

I will definitely be thinking of you tomorrow and will send prayers. I am so glad you will not need hip replacement!! I think it would be wonderful if we all could avoid such surgeries due to less-invasive treatments.

Thank you Deborah. We sure don't want surgery if it can be avoided.
