In brief: Cortisone Take time

The medication fights inflammation.
The more you had the slower it works. Keep taking chondroitin and wait another week. Cannot have another shot for at least a month and why repeat something that didn't work. Try hyaluronic acid or PRP next time. Delay surgery. Chondroitin is slow~ 2months to work.
