Only one week to go before I get my first cortisone injections in my knee
hope it relives the pain and discomfort
if only a bit.
night all

    I hope they help and remember to rest the joints after for as long as you can manage. Rest means rest: feet up with a good book or some mindless telly for hours and hours! The best one I had was for OA in my right ankle, it lasted around three months then normal service was resumed. Any relief however, no matter how temporary, is always welcome. DD

    As its being done by a GP I guess it is more straightforward than my procedures, i.e. just an injection rather than a draining then injection. It is an uncomfortable experience, and you did say on your other thread that you were going to take the day off: I think you should if you can, just to give this the best shot. GPs live with theory, we live with reality. DD

    Well, by my wonky reckoning it was today or it will be tomorrow: either way I hope all goes well, that you can rest as much as possible and that they help. DD
