Hi Guys and Dolls,
Went for my second cortisone injection since March for tendonitis in my right elbow. This injection took longer and hurt much more than the first one. As most of you know the cortisone only treats the inflammation, not the pain. So, the pain is more severe after the injection for a couple days until the inflammation diminishes. I came home with a wrist guard and a tennis band on my arm. The Doctor wants me to try to take the pressure off of the tendon because it is causing muscle spasms and slight swelling. He said this looks like one of the more severe cases of tendonitis...sigh...I do hope the pain is better by Saturday...it's going to be beautiful gardening weather!! I'll be around reading your blogs, might not comment much today and tommorrow, as this little note was quite the challenge!
