I have arthritis in my knee and the specialist suggested a series of cortisone injections....I hope it works...pain free and no meds for up to six months!!!!
It's my right knee, driving leg and I have an hour drive after. The doctor said I will be laid up for a few days, can't do much.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I know it's probably different for everyone but just checking to see if anyone can give me any input about how I will be feeling for a few days regarding pain and mobility.
I've had cortisone shots in my fingers and they have helped me. However, they aren't weight bearing joints. My husband has had shots in the knee and they have worked somewhat, although I'm not sure it was cortisone. I'm sure this isn't much help to you but at least you have heard my experience.
I have had those shots. They are wonderful while they work. I got instant relief. Unfortunately, after a while they stopped working. Eighteen monhs ago I had knee replacement, right knee - five weeks off work - five weeks back at work - left knee - five weeks off - then back to work. It was the BEST thing that I have ever done. It is great to be able to walk without pain. I have a personal trainer and am doing strength training and want to walk in a 5k this fall.
