Hip Operation Questions
Hi I would like to say hello and tell you about myself I am a full time carer for my husband with MS and am in a lot of pain from my hip. I have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritus of my right hip and have been told I will need a hip replacement.
Due to Covid I have shielded my husband for a year since the pandemic started and I am so desperate to have some normality when restrictions ease. I have missed my children and grandchild so much only seeing them very few times and at a distance. After a long wait I have got a telephone consultation with a hip surgeon this week and I just want to seek some advice from you. Best case scenario for me at the moment would be if I could have the hip op maybe towards the end of the year and be offered a targeted hip injection to ease my pain and let me have a few months when lockdown ends to have a bit of normal life with less pain before having to go through the long recovery period of a hip op.
Do you think would be something I might be offered and have any of you had a targeted hip injection and how long did it work for. Thanks
