I saw the dr. today....he says I have Bursitis. He said he does not think the Synvisc (which has
done wonders for my knees) will help, however, we can try to have a shot into the hip joint
itself...so far he has given me shots around the hip to try to get this under control, but it only
lasts about 2 weeks...sometimes a little more.....
Or I can have surgery which I really cannot do right now because of my husband needing
care and I need to be mobile, not laid up for a month or six weeks or whatever time plus needing therapy probably (since they seem to think therapy will fix anything)....
So Thursday the 28th, I will go in and he will use some kind of machine to guide the needle in
to the hip joint. Will let you all know what happens after this one. Praying for it to be successul, because I don't see surgery in my future right now. Would rather skip it altogether.
Thanks to each of you for your posts and support. It means the world to me. Let's pray for
UPDATE: Still having some issues with the hip, not as painful but still know it is there, and
of course this cold weather is not helping anything either...
Appreciate everyone posting. I may have to go in for a back up shot...we shall see.
