PLEASE ADVISE IF ANYONE HAS HAD THE CORTISONE INJECTION AND IF SO, HAS IT RELIEVED THE PAIN. THANKS.

I too had the shots in both feet-3times each. They lasted me about 3 weeks also. I then had to have the heel spur removed from the one foot. My other heel , seemed to improve while out after the surgery. A little time off from the concrete floors at work , i feel did the trick. I wish i had been able to take time off before it came down to having surrgery. It still took about 6 months before my foot was feeling half way normal, and no heel pain. But now I'm living with tendon pain -minimal.
