I am waiting to hear about having an injection into my knee that is a steriod and something radioactive. Apparently I will then be in plaster for 3 weeks. This was kind of just chucked at me by the rhemy nurse at an emergency appt recently and I had to make the decision on the spot. I had a steriod injection in the butt on Oct that lasted only a few weeks. Had a steriod injection in the knee years ago that didn't last long either. I have been in a flare up in Sept last year. This is the worst one I have had so far.
Can anyone tell me anything about this injection?
The nurse wasn't really up for a Q&A - one of those folks that seems to think that you as the patient will know all the jargon and be an expert on anatomy and physiology and RA. Up to now my RA hasn't really caused a great deal of probs. Been on MTX for 10 years varied doses between 10 and 15mg but now up to 20mg.
