Cortisone and aftercare

Posted by Kristin on 12/07/98
Just had my first cortisone shot after trying stretching, nightsplints, and non running for last 5 months. The shot in all honesty wasn't as bad as I have heard people describe it (even my doctor warned me "it hurts like hell".) I've read many failure stories of the cortisone shots, I'm wondering what people did after the shot. Did you stretch religously, stay off the foot and do exercises or did you get optimistic too soon (I can relate, if I have no pain, going out for a run too soon will be hard to resist)and do too much too soon. Interested in hearing from you. Thanks! 18:13:16
