cortisone shots

Posted by John S. on 1/12/02 at 15:30 (069769)

I had a cortisone shot in late October2001. shot was VERYpainful. relief lasted only 6 weeks--now doctor says I need another shot, saying effect would be cumlative--this doesn't make sense to me and I'm afraid of another shot.Could he be right?

Hi,

It could help you alot and then again it may do nothing. The question is what is being done besides the shots of steriods. Any stretching, orthosis,
anything
