    Steroid Hip Injections?

    I have bursitis in my left hip. I had a steroid injection (cat scan guided) a year and a half ago, and it lasted about 10 months. I had another injection about six months ago. The pain is back, and very bad. I am going to call the ortho for an appt to talk about another injection. I don't understand why I have so much bursitis. I have it in both shoulders and both hips. My Orthopedic's NP told me I have a lot of scar tissue in my left hip and it may have to be removed one day. How does a person end up w/scar tissue in the hip? My hip has never been operated on...nor injured...I do have generalized osteoarthritis, but the doctor never told me that I have OA in my hip. Thank you for your input. READ MORE
