Helpful for some, less helpful for others.

Best wishes.

I've had them in my neck, back and knees. The shots have never helped me. Next week I get another shot in my back but I really think it won't work, again.

Several people saying they are happy with their joint replacement are urging for me to get a replacement. I imagine this is a bit premature.

Anxious to get this shot and see how well it will work.

Hip replacements work great. Mine have been in now for 3 years.

Just got the shot. Feels good, but that's the Novocain, will wear off then the cortisone should kick in after a few days.

Before/after range testing confirms the Dx pretty much.

My recent shot did nothing.


Hip replacement is a difficult thing to accept, but in reality very easy and totally worth it.

I just had my Right Hip replaced about a month ago. I did cortisone shots every 6-9 months for almost 4 years, the last year before surgery nothing worked.

They will only do so many cortisone shots in a joint, 5-6 tops. It can be very helpful in the short term for inflammation but ultimately deteriorates the joint even further.

I am still recovering from my surgery but as Pinetree says.........."I should have done this years ago!"

I asked the doctor today what I should think about those who say "I should have done this years ago", with some idea towards the idea that I should be insistent about getting it replaced and for me the answer was "cart before the horse". For now I accept that as we are just starting out.

They want to do this for me. In both knees and hips and left ankle. The bastages who wright laws have made my Dr stop treating chronic pain. So now I have to suffer and hope this crap works. If it doesn't work, like when they tried it 18 years ago, what will they do?

Hell I can always find heroin.

My Surgeon told me you will know when it is time and I did. I just had to wait a year longer than i hoped because new job, new insurance and other logistical reason forced the delay

Methadone worked for Dr House, Wonder if that might be a solution.

I took a trip to Colorado and tried some Pot sold as medicine for pain. I found it to be very entertaining, but worthless for pain relief.

It's been so long since I've smoked weed I have no idea what the current stuff is like. But I've been lucky so far regarding chronic pain issues or arthritis.

I just heard on the scanner another call for a heroin OD, 7 years ago heroin OD's were not heard of. The legislatures thought Dr's were prescribing too many Opiates. Now we have massive heroin abuse.

War on drugs. Yep it really works.

"My Surgeon told me you will know when it is time and I did."

This is helpful thanks.

Not to jinx this but I think the positive effect of the cortisone part is starting to kick in. By Morning shoes and socks ritual was a bit less asymmetrical, for example.

Jake the Shots will work for a while, once they quit working so good it's time to ask which is worse, dealing with the pain or dealing with the surgery.

As I said you WILL know.

Good luck!

Today I tied my own shoes for the first time in months!!
