Steroid injection.

Hello, I’m new here. I’ve recently been diagnosed with bilateral basal thumb arthritis which is causing a lot of pain. I also have arthritis in my feet and knees which was only diagnosed at the end of 2023.

I have an appointment booked next week to have steroid injections in both my hands. I was wondering what to expect and whether I will be able to return to my teaching job straight after the appointment? Thanks.
