Have had several injections of Kenalog, one worked six months, the most recent isn't working as well. Anyone have any luck with any other pain meds to help?
Hi there, sorry I don't know about the one you're on but if they ever offer prednisone be very careful as it is potent and full of side effects. InnerSpirit
I Had Both Hips Totally Replaced Aprox. 6 Months Ago. Now Need Knee Fixed. Im Concerned If I Still Have Avn, I Take Opana,20 Mg 2Xs A Day And Zanaflex 40Mg1 1/2 3 Xs Aday And Dilata 1 Every Six Hours. I Still Have Pain But ITs Tollerable.
I got my diagnosis a month and a half ago. It started out with a constant piping from my left hip. Then it started to hurt… so I to Doctors Care and they said I broke my hip. Come to find out after an MRI I have 20% collapse on my left hip and 80% on my right. They gave me Narco 5's 4 times a day. I can't walk. They do nothing. So I was referred to pain management which I start this week. I need my legs back. I have stayed off my feet as much as possible. Gave up my job, and I am going crazy just laying around. If anyone knows of a " treatment" that isn't surgery. Such as vitamins, or a special french soup , I don't care please tell me !! I will try anything. I'm only 35. I don't want a Fake Hip yet.
I broke my left hip 3 years ago when I fell on ice. Since the repair I have developed AVN and have been told I'm in stage 3. I take only Alleve to relieve the pain. I gave my hip a lot of rest for a couple months and used a cane or crutch while walking. It helped but then any little walking I did without it was painful.
So I ditched it and began physical therapy to strengthen the muscle around the hip. It has helped a lot. Simple exercises like clamshell, leg lifts, bridge and balancing for thirty seconds at a time on the bad leg have increased strength and relieved pain.
I ice it and take alleve on bad days.
I am also taking forteo for my osteoporosis but Surgeons say replacement is inevitable.
