It is almost a year post-op from my second hip surgery. November 30th will be my one year anniversary and is also the day that I see my surgeon. My hip is still hurting so bad. I HATE it. I just want a hip replacement. I have really been considering a replacement but have not met with any serious doctors about it. Just one doctor who said it is not an option at my age.
I see my surgeon in just over a month. I am guessing that he will recommend some sort of injection. I am NOT doing another cortisone injection. But, if it is a rooster comb or some sort of cartilage injection, I will probably do the injection. Then I am guessing my surgeon will recommend another hip surgery to see if there is a soft tissue impingement and correct it. I will try this surgery, then I will start thinking about a hip replacement. I am tired of being is so much pain all the time.
I am in so much pain I can barely think and I am taking my pain killers more often. It really sucks how limited I am. I feel I am missing out on so many fun things and I am going to miss out on more fun things in the future.
