I had an image guided injection of cortisone last December. I have constant pain in my right hip joint all the time that is increasingly getting worse. It disrupts my sleep at night when I change positions. And it interferes with my activities of daily living everyday. At times it feels like my leg will Buckle underneath me when I first stand up. I cannot step sideways or turn suddenly to change directions walking without sudden sharp pain. When I stand from a sitting position at times I cannot put my right foot flat on the floor but I have to stand as if I have a high heel on and after a couple of minutes I can then ease my foot flat on the floor. I have been taking supplements such as chondroitin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen but I do not take all of them at the same time and I take different doses depending on how much money I have at the time to spend on supplements. My schedule taking them is off much of the time because I work 12-hour shifts overnight and I am really tired all the time because I have ESLD. Much of the time I take them once a day when I happen to sit down and remember I need to take them. I have insurance through Obamacare and I would like to try injections of hylauronic acid or collagen. The cortisone injection in December helped quite a bit but it only lasted until mid February. My doctors will not give me anything for pain because of the end stage disease. Tylenol and ibuprofen do absolutely nothing for me. One doctor did give me an NSAID cream that does nothing. I read online that is not meant for the hip but more for the fingers or wrists. I really cannot afford to miss work long enough to have any kind of hip surgery or the time it would take to recover from it. I really really don't want to go that route anyway. What supplements can I take and in what amounts and what brands would be most helpful to me? I do home health care and I have to transfer patients. Any weight from anything I lift or carry that is even slightly heavy is close to unbearable. The orthopedic surgeon I saw in December was a jerk. He rushed the visit and told me he had something more important to take care of. I do not want to see him again.
