No Mister Tree but I think I want to arrange a torture rack thing to do distraction to the joint as with the Mulligan protocols. :)

The best thing is, after my surgery I no longer have to use it.

Just messaged the MD to see what my activities can include. Another PT guy I know socially mentioned that the positive affect can extend past the cortisone metabolizing away. Trying to see how I can help that along!

Up until our Pennsylvania weather turned cold, I was bicycling 300-400 miles a month.

They kinda warned me not to get "too carried away" after the injection, but I feel fine.


My 2 cents... lose some weight and keep moving. You'll buy yourself some time.

But in the end, you'll want to have the hip replaced.

Jake - I have to echo what Pinetree said, I lost a lot of Weight, went from 390+ to 225. That bought me a lot of time! The injections got me even more, but ultimately it's live with the pain or have the surgery

Follow up: The obvious positive effect of the injection was only a few weeks. If I had to say I would think I am slightly better off than before injection. MD today says that he thinks the best course for now is for me to request another injection at my discretion. I'm thinking if in March if it's the same as now I'll request that, or sooner if it gets worse.

I'm not fooling myself. I expect I will get it, but not sure when.

Did you get yours done Pinetree, I think you got a shot recently?

Should I do it even though I don't limp all that much? There seems to be an idea here that the disease should progress past some point. That makes sense "on one hand".

My 2 cents: I’d say do your research now, while you’re relatively pain free and not in need of urgent care. Plan it out as if you were going to have the surgery this year — what institution and/or surgeon has a good rep? Who’s going to pay for it? Familiarize yourself with the entire procedure, from consultation through recovery. Then, when you feel the time is near/might be near, make an appt. with your selected surgeon (or get the referral to him, if you must). Having already familiarized yourself with both the procedure and payment, you can have a much more meaningful discussion with your surgeon. (That would be difficult if you’re consumed with pain....). He can help you decide if the time is right for you to have the procedure. Well, that’s my approach, and it’s worked out well for me.

I got the shot on Halloween, and they make you wait for 90 days before either another shot or the surgery.

I'm on their waiting list.

The best thing I could tell you is to ask yourself if you've ever *not* done something due to the pain.

Didn't go for a walk? Trip to the store?

More like restrictions on how vigorous I can be at the gym, compared to a little more than a year ago. Also "deep flexion" of the hip is something I am supposed to be avoiding.

One other thing: If I workout even mildly at the gym, I will tend to be kept awake by the resulting pain. Although last night I slept OK after a modest gym session.

I am bothered by the fact that I can nullify this pain by having a few/several drinks. It's the only thing that seems to work, I'll have a reasonably refreshing sleep with that Rx. I don't like that.

Thinking about another injection in March. Also getting a consultation with a hip-ortho surgeon.

I'm not that keen on surgery yet, it's not like I am walking around in agony. My gym type activity level is pretty down though.

I'm sleeping a bit better after the mild workouts, I think it's a psychological adjustment maybe.
