Cool thanksIt has really helped me to regain some normalcy in life. My Dr. will only do it every 3 months. I have an appt to get my second one next week. I started noticing the pain back a couple weeks ago. The Dr told me that the shots can cause the cartilage to breakdown, but in my case there is no more cartilage left.
The shot is really not bad compared to the hip pain. They do it under an x-ray so that it can be injected directly into the joint. They first give you a shot or 2 to numb it, then they do the cortisone. There are some YouTube videos on it.
