I am shortly due to have my third steriod injection within 12 months for this condition. The first one worked for about 6 months but unfortunately the second one didn't, so my consultant is doing it again in two weeks time. He seems a bit vague as to alternative treatments for this condition and has ruled out surgery claiming it has little effect. I am not inclined to have steroid injections for the rest of my life and wondeer if anyone else has had alternative effective treatment? I am a reasonably fit 63 year old, or at least I was before this condition set it and must admit to the pain getting me down at times.
