Today is full of limitations. My ankle has really put me in such a rut. At work I have a few steps I have to climb to get to my desk and this morning it did not go well. I keep feeling the pain no matter what I do so I made a HUGE decision today I have to have a cortisone shot (below is a brief description):
Cortisone shots are injections that may help relieve pain and inflammation in a specific area of your body. Cortisone shots are most commonly given in joints, such as your ankle, elbow, hip, knee, shoulder, spine and wrist, as well as the small joints in the hands and feet. Joint injections are commonly referred to as cortisone shots, but what medication or combination of medications is injected varies. Cortisone shots typically include a corticosteroid medication and a local anesthetic. Cortisone shots are typically given in a doctor's office. The results you can expect from cortisone shots depend on the reason for your treatment.
I have had these before and they hurt like He**! But I am at the end of my rope for relief and just need something to help me on my way. I feel as if I will not be able to accomplish my goal of finishing the marathon in March. I was telling my Mom yesterday I just don't feel as if I can do it. But I am going to try and that in itself is all I can do and hope for. I will keep you guys posted but let this be a lesson for everyone you can only do what you can and remember to listen to you body it will tell you what you can and cannot do.
