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.
I was diagnosed with early adhesive capsulitis. My doc prescribed cortisone injection. He asked me to decide: under fluoroscopy or ultrasound. Advice?
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!
Usually a few days: If your hip bursitis does not improve, I would consider the idea you have either a tendonitis or tendonosis around the bursa. You will need to heal these areas and strengthen all the muscles around that hip bursa. Consider PT and maybe even prolotherapy, platelet or even stem cell therapies. Check out Regenexx. Com
Sometimes: However, it is not approved for use in hips in the U.S. So it is not covered by any medical insurance.
A dr said that steroid inj into hip jt crystallizes over time is this true and is this characteristic of all steroid injections?
Yes but rare: The socalled “cortisone flare” reaction has been reported to occur in approximately two percent of patients. This occurs when the injected cortisone crystallizes and causes pain worse than before the shot. Fortunately, these “flares” usually do not last long and resolve with icing after 12 to 48 hours.See 1 more doctor answer

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.
Common after inject: Some pain is expected after cortisone injections, but most are mild. Some may have worse pain shortly after injection is done for couple of days. In rare case, pain can be severe. If worsening swelling, redness, much reduced range of motion, fever etc....Please consult your doc asap as there is a possibility of infection. A rare but dreaded complication of joint injection...Good luck.
