Cortisone injection

I had my cortisone injection under local anaesthetic this morning [with a CT scan] - it hurt more than I thought it would. Right now the anesthetic is still working so I'm not in pain but my left arm feels very heavy. If I don't post in the next couple of days, you'll know why.

Hang in there, I'll be back!!


  1. nearly 26 years ago I went through the same thing and ended up not able to knit for a very very very long time because I didn't do what I was told [ new baby, newly diagnosed autistic feral child, etc so how do you rest the arm even if it's in plaster? ]
    so do as I say not as I did - be a good girl and rest it if you need to.

  2. and I should've qualified that 'same thing' - it was my wrist not shoulder - but cortisone injections are awful no matter where they are - right?
