2/19 Ever get a Cortizone shot in your hand? It hurts like hell! I developed a trigger finger in my right hand and had a shot last fall. It worked for a couple of months and then started acting up again. Recently, it became very painful as well, and I went to the hand doctor to fix it yesterday.
We talked about wood shop hand incidents while he injected my hand with Cortizone and the nurse rubbed my back to help me stay comfortable. GEEZ!!! After a couple of minutes, all was done and I was on my way. Sadly, my right hand was numb for most of the night, and this morning there is bruising and my whole hand is swollen. No shop activities today, but I’m still taking the day off from work. Have lots to do!
