I try not to complain, but everything these days seems on a downhill slide! I went to the ortho yesterday for an evaluation of my carpal tunnel on my right wrist. I have it in the left, too, but want to tackle the most critical first. When my rheumy had referred me over a couple weeks ago, I thought I’d be headed into surgery. Well, thank goodness there were other options, but now I’m not so sure! I had cortisone shot in the right tunnel area to relieve the swelling and hopefully reduce pain. It’s worse than ever today! How long does it take for a cortisone injection to work? Help!! (Once again . . .) It even hurts to type this note!
