Has anyone had cortisone injections for pain post-op? Having an appt with a physiatrist on Wednesday, who will pinpoint where I need the shot(most definitely will be the SI joint or around there) and administer it. I've had one once before in my bursa on my hip when I had hip bursitis from running and it was extremely painful, but did help soothe the pain afterwards...just wondering how the procedure for a shot in a joint would be different, if it is. Eek! I'm praying that it works. I'm sick of these silly issues keeping me on Vicodin-which is making me get terrible acne!!!

Thanks for your input!
