I got a Kenalog injection 8 months ago for allergies in my hip and it has atrophied so much that it causes pain to sit, and sometime just standing. At times pain goes down my leg to the calf. My doctor said it was the worst he has seen and is referring me to a plastic surgeon How long does this condition continue to progress? Is it self limiting? Does that mean I can never take a steroid in the future? I can't tell if the bones hurt or it's just the tissue. Will the tisisiue ever self regenerate? Is collagen a permanent solution or will it have to be repeated periodically?
