|A few days after the cortisone injection.|
|It is hard to see, but I had a nice bruise a week later!|
So the cortisone shot was not the cure. I still have some numbness in my toes after running. On the plus side, not much pain, but that might be due to my low mileage.
My Dr. said that after 6 weeks, if I had any pain or symptoms then we could do an alcohol/fluid injection to help loosen everything up.
I called this week and made an appointment for the injection - June 22nd! Lovely.
If this doesn't work, then the next option is try another round of cortisone and fluid injections and then possibly surgery! I want to avoid surgery since I know the recovery is going to be slow. I also have 2 fall 1/2 marathons scheduled and have a few Spring 2013 races I want to do, so no surgery! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the fluid injection works!
