However, if you have had an actual injection into the joint itself, then there is certainly the possibility of an infection occurring, however chances are still low. ...Read more

Maybe: This decision is best made by your own orthopedist who has direct access to your x rays. A second opinion never hurts. In someone so young, if you can get away with something short of a total joint replacement, it is always preferable to do so. ...Read more
