Re: more shots

hi ladybuggy:
I wanted to say wow that is a lot of shots. Are you sure that you might not be doing more harm that possible benefit. I know there are people, maybe me included that have had problems with too many cortisone injections. Corisone injections can actually destroy good tissue. I don't want to scare you or freak you out but it does happen. There are many people that have had too many cortisone injections in their feet and it makes the fat pad atrophy or basically eaten away and it doesn't come back. I think that may have been some of my problem but I have had so many cortisone and alcohol sclerosing injections that the podiatrist said there is no way to know what caused the damaged(probably a combination of injections, surgery)

Oh by the way what the heck is sp? oh is that spelling? Are you on meds too or are you just getting procedures? Sorry I can't remember (blame it on the meds right?)

Re: more shots

hi , thanks for the reply when i had the shots friday i those were my first for my back ...and i thought i wasn't suppose to take any meds before hand so i was having major withdrawels from my vicodon and the xanax so i was a messso the had me take my xanax then did the 7 shots got home and over the weekend i've relized that we only got 1 trigger pointand i feel 50% better at the one spot so they had me come back and i took all my meds before i came in cause the meds don't take the pain away just down sometimes but i'm still in bed 90% of the timeanyway i was able to pin point the places easier so i hope that sence they were in alittle different places on my back it won't cause prob. cause the spots were close....sp ,speacilist i just can't spell it i'll blame that on the meds lol
did the shots ever make you feel very very tense? i/m about to take another xanax

i also have major feet/ankle prob but thats been on the back burner sence this injury whats funny is my foot ortho says use a wheel chair etc.. my back stuff all they can say is walk walk walk any way i can hardly get to pt so i guess no worries there wyet

Re: more shots

wow seven, I had four. I will always remember because it was on christmas eve day & I prayed to get rid of the headache that I had, which the injections did manage to diminish the headache, but boy was that area sore. I just could not imagine 7. My doc who did the injections never told me I could not take my meds before hand, of course the injections were not preplanned. He would just see what condition I was in when I got there. I remember him saying he could see the knotted areas move when he injected.
good luck I dreaded those injections & may have more in the future, there is no deodorant strong enough to prevent the way I sweat knowing those injections were coming. Sammy
