Absolutely! I've had steroid shots pretty much everywhere and they've always worked for me. Hopefully, it'll give me some peace in the need for a good long while. It's possible that after taking a break from the Synvisc for however long the steroid shot gives you may mean that Synvisc will work again.
Keep us posted on your progress, please?
I'm going to call th ortho doc and see what he thinks. He has never suggested steriod shots in my knee, but the Synvisc has always worked prior to this one. Thanks for the info, Lene. I will give it a "shot", tee hee. Pun intended. V
Obviously I'm not a doctor, but if it's helped your the joints, I can't see why it wouldn't help your knee. When I was a kid, I regularly got steroid shots in my knees, as well as the other joints, so why not?
