How Often Can I Get A Cortisone Shot In My Hip
How long do I have to wait to have arthroscopy of the hip after getting a cortisone shot in that joint? Do I have to wait to get it out of body?
No : If the injection helped tell your surgeon( not sure if it was in the hip joint or hip bursa)... Either way if injection helped than arthroscopy may help( for bursectomy or hip labral tear). The steroid injection may have been a diagnostic and / or therapeutic injection but does not affect ( by itself) timing for surgery... Good luck! ...Read more
Cortisone: The answer to this is multifaceted -- often a cortisone injection into a joint will take some effect in 24-48 hours, however, responses to cortisone vary. Not all joint pain responds to cortisone -- if you have no improvement in 5-7 days, i would contact the physician who performed the injection. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have a headache after a cortisone shot in the hip. Is this a side effect and if so should I be concerned?
Do what feels best: The corticosteroid shot you had is a long acting but slow release medication-after 2 days we typically expect the medication is just beginning to take effect and it may take a week to really kick in. If you don't feel any improvement at 2 weeks, you should talk to your doctor about other options. Pt or home stretching and strengthening may help. Good luck! ...Read more

How painful and how effective is a cortisone shot in the hip? I have had increasing pain in my hip for a handful of years now. I have been told by one doctor that there is osteoarthritis, and by a neurologist that it is trochanteric bursitis . Also some f
If : If you have bursitis, a cortisone shot usually isn't too uncomfortable for the patient. If you have osteoarthritis, the injection is technically more difficult and may be more uncomfortable. A bursitis injection can easily be done in the doctor's office while an intra-articular injection (for osteoarthritis) is often given under x-ray guidance. The response to both may be variable: anything from complete, long-term relief to nothing. The response to injection depends on the accuracy of the diagnosis as well as the efficacy of other concurrent treatment strategies such as activity modification and physical therapy, with suspected bursitis, it is important to evaluate the low back to make sure that the hip pain isn't referred from a bulging disc or sciatica. With injections in the joint, there may be some accelerated cartilage breakdown secondary to effects of the corticosteroid. The duration of relief, if any, tends to be shorter for these injections as well. There are fewer risks with injections in the bursa. However, if multiple injections are required, there is some concern about the cummulative effects of the corticosteroid that is absorbed in the system and there is probably a reason to look at other treatment options. ...Read more
Depends: Why are you getting them? The reason for the shot is the determining factor. Usually a steroid shot in the back or into a joint is no more than every 3 months and that is usually the maximum and for good causes. Shot in the hip are the same and would need to know why! steroids are good meds but harmful if abuse or misused. It is often a way to get someone out of pain until a joint replacement. ...Read more
