I went to my Orthopedic appointment at the University of Iowa Hospital today and had to have a cortisone shot in my right elbow (my dominant side), and I remembered how bad the "juice" felt going in, but I had blocked out how badly it felt after I was a good half-hour out and away from the hospital. I could barely shift the car (I have a gear-shift on the floor), and ever since I got home a little before 5 PM, I have been sitting on my computer trying to get my school work done, as well as checking out FB and Google, here with an ice pack on my elbow to keep the swelling down. This is not something I recommend to anyone. I have to work tomorrow and I sent my boss an update so that if I email something or call early in the morning, they'll at least be aware that this is the problem. The last time I had a shot in my elbow for the "tennis elbow" diagnosis was when my daughter was close to 6 or 7 years old and she is now nearly 26. She had to shift the car for me then. Unfortunately, I didn't have anyone to do that for me this time, and it was awful! If anyone else has ever had this done, please commiseration is in order. I appreciate any sympathy I can get from you all. I am not a masochist and this pain is God-awful coupled with the fact that my right wrist and hand are practically numb and that doesn't help matters any. Just wanted to update you. I'm sure I'll get better, but right now, I'm not so sure! TTFN!
