Update if anyone is interested. I had the steroid injections as planned. Boy, I felt like a pincushion! That night, my hips were one painful mess but the next morning I felt like a new woman! I was totally astounded that I was *sort of* pain free. I still hurt at the injection site but that constant throbbing was gone. Fast forward to now, I went back in to see the pain doc and I was happy to report that my pain is now 60% better. I still have some bad days but not like before. I go see him again in March but he asked if I felt I needed another injection at that time, so I told him no - I don't think I need one just yet. But I went in for xrays of my hips and spine. I will be happy to report that there was no fusing and the spaces in between the discs were normal as well as the little thingys that come out of it - forgot what the doc called it. He said I had minimal arthritis so as of now, we are just watching this.
