It's been a little over seven months since the last time I had a hip shot and I probably waited a month to long. This last month the idea of going ahead and getting the hip replaced was starting to look better and better. Hopefully, after the treatment today, delaying it at least another half-a-year or more will seem like a workable solution.
There was a different doctor working in the radiology department today. He was totally lacking in bedside manner. It wasn't that he was rude, he just was all business. I don't think he smiled the whole time. The doctor who gave me my last injection was talkative and friendly and explained every step.
The rest of the staff was extremely pleasant. The discharge nurse was downright giddy. Everyone was very nice, from intake through departure.
Now I am home and resting. I am supposed to give the medicine a chance to settle in around the joint before I resume normal activity. I also have to let the numbing agent where off before I try to use the leg much. As I didn't sleep well last night, resting shouldn't be a problem. There may even be some napping involved.
