"i have never been pain free following surgeries but pain has been reduced and I have been able to walk using a cane. Anticipating another revison surgery and replacement makes me wonder what will happen this time. Hope this is somehow helpful. I really "feel your pain".

I believe you replied to me when I first signed up. I still have not gotten the replacement because like all or most of us......We have to work for a living and cannot afford (even if you have insurance) to be out..... I did have a cortisone shot with floroscopic help and I read some of the replies and to me and I can endure pain but this had me almost rising off the table with sweat pouring out when I felt that needle. It was done in the groin area which I for some reason thought it would be on the outer side. Hmmmmm. I was put into a surgical suite with two xrays displaying frontal and side views as the doctor was injecting. I did have some kind of pain deadning but hmmm not enough I think. I was so upset when I left because I was hurting even more in the joint but my leg felt dead, knumb it was weired. I will say this after five days I did stop hobbling and favoring the right leg, but I am still so stiff that I cant even tie my sneakers or even touch me toes and that is a serious problem now. Just think. Drop something like a atm card on the ground, and you cannot pick it up without making a scene. I am doing some soul searching and trying to decide what matters to me, did you see miracle workers on abc with the hip replacement on the broadway dancer and he was out of the bed within four hours standing.
