Anyone that's had a shot for their hip how effective was it? I'm looking at having my right hip done but really want to wait until it's cold out. Dr's office said 3 months wait after shot for THR, that would time it out about right for me if it does the trick. If not then it's 3 months wait which is what it is. I told them today I'll think about it and let them know what I want to do. If no shot I can have the THR in 4-6 weeks. I really live for summer and the idea of being sidelined for summer doesn't make me happy.
