I had a cortisone injection in my knee yesterday, and it hardly hurt at all. This morning I feel as though I have a new leg ... it's wonderful!
Now I want to trot back to Poole Hospital and have the same in all my other achey bits, but that's probably not allowed.
My lovely rheumatologist asked me if I would mind him injecting my knee. He said some patients go pale and stagger towards the door when he suggests this, which is a shame, 'cos it's amazing.
I would just like to reassure anyone offered this treatment that you feel only a bit of a cold ache when the stuff goes into the joint, the needle is painless 'cos they freeze your skin, and the results are almost immediate.
I'm off for a walk to try it out!
Love to all - Moffy xxx
