Hip Pain

trozm posted:
My orthopedic doctor says I need a hip replacement, which I'm all for. During pre-admission testing for the hip surgery the doctors discovered I have a cancer nodule in my right lung. I realize this changes my medical priority. My hip pain is becoming unbearable would a steroid shot help to ease the pain? My hip is bone on bone, there is no cartlidge left.

Hello.

Everyone responds to treatments uniquely. There is a possibility that a steroid injection may help your pain. You should discuss this with your orthopedic surgeon and/or pain management specialist asap.

I pray you can get relief soon.
