It's just shy of 4 weeks since my hip injection of cortisone and I think it's beginning to wear off. The pain is still fairly minimal, but the stiffness has returned and when I stand up from sitting for a while its difficult and sore. Given how bad the osteoarthritis is right now, I'm happy to have had 4 weeks of relief and not having to pump my body full of analgesics. I would have it again, but given that you're only supposed to have 2-3 shots of it in a year and several uses can actually damage the joint, it's definitely a last resort.
Oh well, only 10 days to go! Bring it on.....
