I’m 31 and currently on maternity leave as I’ve just had my first baby. Had pain during my pregnancy in my right hip, then found out I have no cartilage left in my right hip and have OA in both hips and back.
Have just seen a consultant who says I can have a hip replacement now or try steroid injections. I have chose the steroid injections and now I’m on a waiting list. Has anyone tried these injections before? Do they help with the pain?
I am putting off a hip replacement as I feel I’m too young and by the time I need my 3rd hip it may not work as well.
Sleep is a big problem, not only am I in so much pain I have a 9 month old who doesn’t sleep either and it’s draining me.
And I’m away to start work again next week, I’m a nurse who does 12 hour shift, dreading going back!
If anyone has any advice for me on anything I’ve moaned about that would be amazing!
