Cortizone shot. No Way Jose!

I had one, hurt like the dickens and put me on crutches for two days until the pain went down. About two weeks later, after wearing supportive shoes and inserts and walking on a smooth flat dry surface, 'ting', the tendon ripped again and I was right back where I started from. Most people report short-term relief if any, and it isn't good to get more than two in the same foot, avoid it if at all possible.
