DR,

Could you please tell me i had 2 cortisone injections of depo medrol 8 weeks apart while casted for FDL AND FHL Tenosynovitis. Is this area of injecting the inside ankle grounds for malpractice? It did not make my pain worse it did not help at all. I was just wondering i fthe location is dangerous and unacceptable to do for this problem.

Why do you think this is grounds for malpractice.? If you received no relief then it is time for a re-evaluation of the current situation.
