tts injection

Are there any complications associated with tts injections, and has any one had success with them or has any one developed worse problems??

There can always be complications to any medical procedure. There have been serveral discussions on the board concerning injections. I got relief from the injections I had, but it was not a 'cure' for me :( I ended up having surgery, and am hopeful that I'll be back up on my feet soon. ):

Just checked, and you can hit the next set of messages and there is a discussion on page 2 of this board.

As far as success is concerned, people most people have gotten relief for at least a couple of days to weeks. A few lucky people have gotten relief for MONTHS, and for a very lucky few, these shots turn out to be The Treatment that reduces the inflammation long enough to give their foot/ankle time to heal. I actually think it may have worked that way for me, in my LEFT foot (I had TTS on both sides).

As far as complications are concerned, Lari is right, if you look at the next set of messages and go to the middle of the page, you'll find a post by 'samuel adam' talking about 'tts injection?' and there is a discussion of possible complications there.

The injections certainly helped me but of course it wasn't a cure.

I had no complications.

I have had a few injections of coritzone and i have found that it hasnt really helped my condition. As everyone on the board knows i had surgery in may and i still can not walk. i am still in the cast til the 17th and then i will probably go back to physical therapy. This has been an ongoing battle :( I just hope i can walk before the end of the year ha ha . I have lots of pain still and have tried staying off the foot and hop around with my walker with the cast on. It is no fun. good luck to ya

I had my second TT surgery in July and haven't been able to do PT because my incision didn't close, I went to a wound specialist for about 5 weeks then had a vac on for another 5 weeks then finally had to have surgery again to close the incision. I'm finally starting PT and my Dr. talked about a cortizone shot for my PF. I don't know if the surgery helped, still lot of pain but I was off my foot for 5 months so it may be from PT too. This is such a nice web site, I've never been here before and I had no idea that TTS was so common, no one around here seems to have heard of it.
