Can the embryo have problems if you have fluoroscopy for lumbar injection on day 23 of your cycle. HCG was neg, then 1 week after procedure it was pos?

Should be all orNone: Fetal X Ray exposure early in the first trimester is currently thought of as an "all or none" phenomenon. That is, since vital organs are just being formed, a mutation would likely kill the fetus if it did anything. X rays later in pregnancy may cause deformities which may carry into live births.
Thankfully, most Fluoro procedures (incl. Facet inj.) have quite limited dose, anyway.
Not to worry. ...Read more

Radiologist: a fluoroscopy for epidural spinal injections for back pain (l5-s1). It's about the same radiation exposure for me as one chest X-ray?

Radiologist: a fluoroscopy for epidural spinal injections for back pain (l5-s1). It's about the same radiation exposure for me as one chest X-ray?

Not Exactly True: Depends on how long the procedure takes. Typically most epidural injections take about 15-20 sec of fluoroscopy time, that is in order of 10x less than typical chest x-ray. Now if injection takes longer than one minute (60 sec) of fluoroscopy time than you will be close for exposure. That's a lot of flouro for this injection! ...Read more

Can hip injection infect my hip replacement?

Can hip injection infect my hip replacement?

Depends: Many hip injections are done for bursitis (greater trochanteric bursitis - the side of the hip) - these injections are superfical, outside of the joint, and would be highly unlikely to cause infection of a hip replacement. 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

Severe hip pain bilaterally not bursitis thought it was si had injection only lasted a mo what's wrong?

See below: I agree with previous answer. "hip pain" could be related to the hip joint, gluteal tendons, bursitis, si joints, lumbar spine, or other muscles that support the hip. In addition to an eval and imaging, diagnostic injections with anesthetic only could be used to localize the pain generator if you fail to improve with other conservative measures. ...Read more

I just got a bursitis hip injection, I am a little confused what they injected into my hip and how it is going to effect me. How does that work?

I just got a bursitis hip injection, I am a little confused what they injected into my hip and how it is going to effect me. How does that work?

Anti-inflammatory: You probably got an injection of a mixture of a synthetic cortisone such as celestone (betamethasone) and a local anesthetic. There is usually no general effect. If you are diabetic then your blood sugar may be affected. The area can be more painful for a short while, but the pain from the injection and from the bursitis will probably subside over a few days. Applying a cold pack can help. ...Read more

Is anyone using Euflexxa or other injections on hips with little cartilage left due to severe OA? I can't have a total hip and need to find some help!
