    I had a shot for tendinitis in my left hand .They wanted to see if it would help before going the surgery rout.Did not had surgery.

    I have Carpal Tunnel in my right hand and my doctor is going to try the shot first next week.If the prednisone does not work than I go for surgery.

    My husband has a bad foot.I forget what you call it.Well if the shot did not take care of it plus this medication he's on he would have had surgery that would of laid him up for a month or so.

    The prednisone really helped so now he's on a medication for it.No surgery for him and boy was he happy.

    Hope I was some help.

    No I haven't heard of that. I had to have both the surgeries though. They put me through all this other stuff that didn't work then just went ahead with the surgeries.

    I have never had the shots for carpal tunnel. I have it in both wrists. Had surgery on my right wrist and it was great for about 6 months and the carpal tunnel returned so I have never had the surgery on my left wrist since it probably would do the same thing. For me, going through the surgery was not worth on 6 months of pain relief even though my wrists hurt like hades at times.
