Comments for this study:

annapier (10 months ago):

I am 44 year old female who got a cortisone shot on Januuary 21st 2014. The shot was on my elbow because it was determined that I had tennis elbow and this would help. It helped for about 2 months but never felt completely healed. Now the pain is back and I cant lift anything heavier than a bottle of water without hurting the elbow. I cant make the motions needed with my fingers and thumb to use a spray bottle. Even if I get it empty enough to hold, it causes great pain to try to pull the spray trigger (same way with pumping gas). With all that said ..... my main question is --- should I still have a bruise at the injection site four months later?
