Cortisone injections.vs cortisone "rub" via ultrasound.? Topic: Enthesis structure
May 26, 2019 / By Destinee
Question: I went for a surgical consult on the 6th of this month and thought that i was finally(7 months later) going to be scheduled for surgery on my left knee...(5 previous months of PT, and 3 cortisone injections... did very little to help with the continuous pain and osscational swelling), instead the surgeon said that he wanted to try yet another month of PT with liquid cortisone and ultrasound to "see if that helps"... he said that sometimes the cortisone works better if administered via ultrasound rather then injection...and that he didnt think that 2 MRI would have missed a tear to my meniscus or any other structure(inital injury was minor tear of MCL) and that there was nothing surgically to be done to the MCL, he also said that i should NOT still be experiencing pain over the MCL after 7 months my question is Does crotisone really work "better" if done via ultrasound? Will it still have the same negative effects as the injections?

I suppose it depends on where they are trying to get the cortisone too? I have Rheumatoid Arthritis so am used to having joints injected, but my understanding the cortisone stays within the joint capsule and is eventually absorbed. Ligaments, would be more enthesis, at the end of the bone, so outside the capsule. Therefore the ultrasound would be better as it is absorbed through the skin, so more of a direct route. Best of Luck

When you went to MEPS, did you disclose that you were being treated with cortisone? Keep in mind, if you have concealed a disqualifying condition, and it shows up during BMT, you can be charged under Article 83, UCMJ for Fraudulent Enlistment, and be given a General, Under Other than Honorable Conditions discharge that can haunt you the rest of your life.

Yes, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT IN WRITING. I can't stress that one enough. It can show up in a test and then the commander will ask question so to make that short and sweet have a note from your dr with their signature.

you got redirected here to LGBT because transsexuals take hormone shots while your husband is just a normal genetic male who is low and needs them and you ended up being hit by what we call a troll someone who hates we transsexuals and who posts hate-filled messages against those of use who are transsexuals and makes fun of us and those who have relationships with us I am sorry you were victimized by her your husband would take these shots as directed by his doctor and they would be intramuscular in the thigh I take estrogen every other week it does not hurt much it leave a small mark that goes away it a few days if you get an air bubble in the syringe if will cause a bruise so be careful My friends have also found that if the partner (in this case that is you his wife) gives the shot they do not have to steel themselves up so much for the shot and it is easier edit then: if he can't take the shots there are bio-identical creams that work very well but they are a lot more expensive, usually you rub the amount on your wrist or forearm every day, you can get them from special pharmacies that mix them up for you on your doctors formula. and the sex change surgery is actually about 3-4 hours for M2F and more like 6 hours for F2M I think NOT 30 minutes

They're done intramuscularily, usually into the top of the thigh. Trans guys get them either weekly or biweekly. There are also creams, gels and patches which may be an alternative. Ignore the Lesbophobe troll. "She" is a hater who loves to show off how clueless and hate-filled "she" is at every opportunity.
