Well I had my steroid inj into the big toe joint last tuesday. This was because the joint is rigid and very painful to walk on. The inj was painful and uncomfortable but only for a few minutes. A local anaesthetic is injected at the same time (under guided x-ray) so that when they ask you to walk on it, in the theatre, you can tell if it's in the right place as the pain should be gone. And it was! What an amazing feeling, my B.P. went sky high! However once the local wore off the pain returned and here I am a week later and still in pain. Admittedly not as much as before. My surgeon has told me to get back to him when I want as he needs to fuse the joint. I am not ready for another operation yet, only 10 months since bunion op. I so want my life back tho!
