She had a hip replacement 13 yrs ago so can't do an MRI. They did a CT scan of hip.
The scan was taken 2 days after the initial appt with the doctor for the swelling. At that initial appointment he gave her a kenalog shot in the swollen hip. It caused a bruise as long and wide as her thigh. 2 days later pain remained extreme and I took her back to doctor. Showed him bruise and he ordered CT. They said scan was normal. that was 9 days ago. She is a little better, can sit up occasionally, with effort. She is eating although not hungry. Very weak. Pain is still high and hip is still swollen.
Dr. Chip - She is anemic and we are trying to get her to eat high protein, red cell producing food. They have been watching her blood work closely. She has a doctors appointment on Monday. Should I talk her to the hospital or wait for the appointment. Is there anything we can do for the swollen hip? The hip looks like she has a 1/2 foot ball attached. The hematoma came after the swollen hip.
