    Default Steroids?

    Has anyone ever have steroid injections? I go to the hospital tomorrow for some in my fingers, hand /wrist and just wondering what to expect. Does it hurt? Not sure it could hurt anymore then it already does. Do they freeze it first?
    The surgeon said injections. I'm just assuming it's steroid injections.

    It does sound painful but believe it or not....I'm excited about it. I'm expecting to come out of there in less pain then going in. Lets hope it works cause the first surgery is still a fair wait from now.

    My sister had steriod injections in her hip a couple years ago. It was the last thing they could really do before she had her hip replaced. Going into the hospital she could barely walk and the injections helped a lot. They didn't last as long as expected for her. The shot was suppose to last for three months and it barely lasted a month. It did relieve her pain while it was in her system.

    Oh that is so good to hear goodasgold. I don't care how long they last, one day pain-free would be amazing. But does the actual shots hurt?

    Thanks for the link Ne touchez paz. I already told my wrist surgeon that I have no tolerance for pain so hopefully he'll go easy on me. This is the surgeon who is doing my surgeries on my wrist but tomorrow he's doing my trigger thumb and fingers/wrist because I can't see the thumb surgeon til April. I was ready to kiss the guy. I don't think I would have made it til April.
    I don't think I've ever been so excited about getting needles in my life. Very strange.

    I had steroid injections in the bottom of my foot. The doctor told me it would be extremely painful and it did hurt but it wasn't that bad. I guess it is all dependant on one's pain tolerance and what pain you have to compare it to. I felt relief for a couple of weeks (it was supposed to be for three months) but it was worth it, even for those couple of weeks.

    Ya I think it would be worth it even if it was only for a day.
    Would I be able to get more injections if they don't last 3 months? I know I should ask the doctor but I was just kinda wondering about it.

    I have had many steroid injections and they did not hurt, the Dr will inject a freezing before the steroid is injected. You may experience some discomfort but I haven't. How long the injection will last depends on the individual situation. Ask the Dr tomorrow how often you can have them repeated, guidelines are different depending upon the person and their situation.
    Good luck tomorrow...i believe you will feel less pain beginning tomorrow!

    Yeah and can you imagine what it's going to be like after surgery? I might have to find someone to help me out. I mean, it is my right hand and all. Depressing.
