1/4/16Ankle tendonitis. Still suffering slight swelling at ankle and ache. Recheck on 2/17. What can be done? Cortisone shot?What about the swelling?
I have had a partial tear in my ankle ligament for a year. Would the cortisone shot help in recovery? Should I be working a desk duty job while I jure
Ankle injury: Steroid injections are co train fixated on this setting. Podiatrists love to do this but there is copious Orthopaedic literature contraindicating this. If this is painful, causing instability or dysfunction then I would try a course of immobilization. Ultimately it may require a repair, reconstruction or simple debridement. ...Read more
Can you have inflammation from ankle tendonitis drained if doesn't go down? Had cortisone shot 4 days ago. Xray no break. Rice 4wk. Want swelling gone
Draining fluids: from a joint for therapeutic reasons is not a common place practice. Any time you access a joint with a needle, there is potential for introducing infecting agents into the joint, which is a very serious condition.

I don't think your coldness is related to shot. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Return of ganglion: Often ganglion cysts can be aspirated and return. Ganglions are leakage of joint or tendon fluid that the body walls off (therefore your cyst). Even with aspiration, there is a chance that the cyst can fill up again. Also you can still have post injection pain to the site but we should also watch for redness which can in rare cases be a post-injection infection ...Read more
If you have a bladder infection and on antibiotic,can you get a cortisone shot in your knee.Would it make infection worse-cortisone?
UTI & cortisone shot: Unlikely that intraarticular cortisone will make a bladder infection worse - I am assuming you were on treatment for the infection prior to the cortisone shot. Bladder infections generally respond quickly with the right antibiotic. Just to be sure I would ask for a urine culture several days after completing the antibiotic to make sure the infection is cleared. good luck ...Read more
