Fianally- after 6 months of pure hell, I can walk without crutches (well, at home, for short periods of time). Seems like with most other things related to my hip, the cortisone took a long time to kick in but it finally did and I feel like a new person. I can walk again! It's like night and day. This has been a game changer in so many ways but most importantly, I am so so so happy right now. Since injecting near the screws made all the difference, they have to come out. I feel like I am living with a dark cloud hanging over me with this fear that any day the cortisone will wear off and I will be back to where I was before. Right now it looks like I won't be able to coordinate my husband and my Mom's schedule for another 4 weeks but I guess in the grand scheme of things what's another 4 weeks? It's been 6+ years since this started and I can't wait for it to finally be over.
