Cortisone

I am going to the specialist about my wrist in a week, and I am leaning towards a cortisone shot. Its in my non throwing wrist, but I am also a hitter, and a good one at that, so i have to be able to swing. I’m the teams 3 hitter, so i need to be ready in 4 weeks for the summer season. I have had the tendinitis in the wrist since march 1st, and did all the icing, and treatments and rehab with the trainer, but cant shake it.

I’m posting this to see what you guys think about the cortisone shot. I have had one before, in my pitching shoulder, and it paid off to the extreme.

P.S.—I am “Needle Phobic”. So me saying I need the shot should give you the idea of the pain. I am unable to complete a swing bcuz of the pain, and FYI, I have an enormous pain threshold.

  1. Get over needle-phobia
  2. If it worked before, get it again.
  3. Continue hitting third.

You need to do numbers one and two (if the cortisone did in fact work before) to reach number 3.

If it were only that easy to get over.

dont be a va g… its just a lil needle man up kid… i had a cortisone shot in my rotator cuff a few weeks ago and it didnt even hurt. just make sure that you take off a week after it. you’ll feel fine during that week, but if u were too play on it and like swing hard n stuff which would normally hurt ur wrist, u just wont feel it but when it wears off, itll come back liek 10x harder.

I have had it in my shoulder too. That was soso. But my wrist is all inflamed and hurts to move it. So it will hurt worse.

And if you went through what i did, you would not call me a “vag” you prick.

arite than man up… ive been in some pain my life too sir

Ever have a needle as big around as your lil finger stabbed into your Femur?
Ever die?

Well I did, all in the course of one night when i was 7. If you haven’t, tahn you have not felt pain.

…you died?.. pretty sure u werent born 4 months premature sir… but i mean hey maybe you were. and weighed 1 pound when you were born and hadda spend 6 months in the hospital. or have a tube put into your dome piece for no reason

WTF are you talkking about? Never said anything about being a premie.

I was rushed to the hospital with a mass of illnesses that suffocated me. I died, and had to have a mix of steroids and somthing else to open my airway and allow them to bring me back

I think he was talking about himself but I’m not positive. Joey take it easy, you act like your not afraid of anything. Don’t be an ass, we don’t have many on this website so just relax, if its such a problem that he’s afraid of needles just ignore the topic. I’m sure there are people in this world that could make you look like a punie wuss. No ones perfect.

arite arite my b… sorry kid didnt mean 2 get on your tits like that… but i mean if the shot’s worked before even tho it might have hurt… do what yougotta do right?

I’m getting closer. :lol: :lol:
