Dear Lisha and all,
It seems after I was dx in late Sept, early Oct 2009 with NHL, so many stupid issues arose.
Anyway,I went to see my doctor yesterday for an explanation of the xrays I had last week of my right hip and right knee. As far as the Oxycodone, 15 mg I take 3 times a day, he is not concerned or worried about addiction. He did say, eventually it might have to be increased. He suggests I try the gel treatment for my right knee. For those not familiar with this treatment, I believe you go for an injection of this gel once a week for 3 weeks.
As far as my right hip, he thinks I need surgery. I have bad arthritis in this hip. I do believe all my problems in my right hip was caused by the bone marrow biopsy I had in Oct 2009.
PS: Anyone familiar with gel treatment for the knee, can you respond please, thank you.
Hugs and love from me. Maggie
