Cortisone injection for trochanteric bursitis?
I’m exactly 5 months past a very successful right TKR. Things were going great, back to normal life and exercise routine, and then I developed right side hip pain about 2 months ago. Most painful at night, and at rest. Diagnosed as trochanteric bursitis. Had this once before 2 years ago, received cortisone injection. All that did was cause initial numbness, significant pain for 36 hours, and then no improvement. This time I’m opting for PT and exercises to begin with. Wondering if my non-benefit of the past cortisone is common, or not? I may have to resort this if I can’t get rid of the pain on my own.
