  • Being a chart review, steroids were various and dose is not documented.
  • Relief didn’t even last 2 weeks:

    • Relief at time from local injection did confirm joint was the issue which was helpful.

Comment – Prior studies didn’t find much help either. Some of these people are in considerable pain and have to wait 6 month + for surgery in Canada.  I have tried steroid injection and found it didn’t help much as well. This is really disappointing. Painkillers are the key…
