3 hours after injection

Dr Fox from Wye surgery performed the injections which were painless during the process and have been since. He used no anaesthetic with the injection and I am now hoping that this will give me some relief from the constant tingling and numbness that I am suffering at present, the doctor suggested 3 - 7 days before any change felt, I await in anticipation!

Nice to have a report of a 'painless' injection - most of them are relatively painless but a few do seem to cause considerable pain and those patients tend to tell everyone about it more which creates a somewhat biassed overall view of how traumatic the injection is. Yours is quite a bad CTS to start with so it will be interesting to see how it responds - we don't inject many this bad. The majority of patients seem to get a response within 48 hours but again - we don't do many as bad as this so that may make a difference. We stopped using local anaesthetoic with the injection a few years ago as it seems to serve no useful purpose. Thanks for the feedback. JB

Reporting further on progress after injection; after 3 days in there was no initial obvious change then on day 4 it felt like the pain was dissipating up my fingers I felt comfortable enough to leave the splints off on that night too. After 6 days I still have a great deal of numbness specially in the finger tips but the pain and uncomfortable feeling in the pads around my thumb is much less there has been a great deal of improvement in mobility and a reduction in pain and would recommend this injection to severe sufferers - how long it lasts will remain to be seen! I would like to thank Dr Fox for pain free injections too. If there are any further changes that develop I will report back on this forum.

You are of course welcome to comment on here as much as you like. Dr Fox will be doing a formal follow-up for me at 6 weeks post injection too. JB
