How muchtime does it take to recover from a trigger finger pain after taking a cortisone shot, can you also explain where exactly it is taken?

In brief: Few days max

Sometimes can have what's known as a steroid flare where your pain becomes worse after getting a "cortisone" injection.
Icing it and taking anti-inflammatory medications (nsaids) helps; can also try topical creams. Talk to your doctor if its been more than a few days and not getting better.

In brief: Fast recovery

The recovery should be fast and you should know if the injection works in 2 or 3 days.
