Fat Pad / Cortisone

Posted by EKC on 3/19/02 at 09:05 (076822)

How long after a series of cortisone shots would the Fat Pad become noticeably deteriorated (i.e., feel like there is no padding in heel) if the fat pad loss is indeed due to the cortisone? Within months, after 1 or 2 years?

It can happen soon or after a few months. It will depend on the amount and type of local steriod injection used.
