: : jennifer, how did your surgery go? how is your pregnancy progressing? it's been two weeks sincew i had the cortizone, and it has made an enourmous difference! i wish you well. cathy
: Cathy, I was just wondering if you were pregnant when you had the cortizone shot. I am 24 weeks pregnat with twins and I have had cts from almost the very beginning. I used to be able to bear the pain but it has gotten worse. My doctor sent me for the wrist splits and they have not worked. It's gotten so bad I hardly sleep at night. DO you think I should ask my doctor about getting the shot? I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks, Joanna
I recieved one cortizon shot when I was pregnant. It made a very big difference immediately, but wore off after 3 months. I am now after the baby and am going to reacess my hands since the symptoms now are much different. I was considering doing the surgery during pregnancy but the doctor recommended not to. In retrospect I am very glad.I know this is an old posting but maybe it will help someone looking now.
