Fractured pelvis during childbirth 15 months ago still in so much pain now have bursitis hip. Doctor said will be hard to carry more children true?
Ouch!: I am so sorry this happened - it is a rare complication, but as you well know, is very painful. Unfortunately, if you are still having symptoms 15 months out, it is likely this will be a chronic problem, including with future pregnancies. It's not like you can easily put your pelvis in a cast and let it heal. Physical therapy may help, as well as biofeedback techniques to try and put mind over pain. ...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 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

Should I go to the doctor? I think I jammed my finger in gym class today, but I'm not too sure. It's not swollen or bent, it just hurts a lot when I'm writing, typing or texting.
I: I would ice the finger and take Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) to help prevent swelling. Also refrain from using the finger (e.G typing / texting). If the pain does not subside in a day then have the finger examined, and if necessary x-ray'd. Even though it may not be broken, you could have sustained ligament damage. If you find that you have lost the range of motion in the finger you should seek help. ...Read more

3) back pocket pain - can be nerve related
i would do some therapy for stretching, etc. If it doesn't get better and you are not seeting an ortho specialist - go see a hip ortho doctor. ...Read more
