So far most of the gains made by the cortisone shot have held, with some pain returning to my right arm but nothing like the horrible stabbing pain I had previously. He said next time he could put more of the cortisone on the right side so maybe that will finally do it. I'm just glad to not be in extreme pain 24/7 and moving ice packs from place to place. I am still careful not to overdo it and still babying my neck and back so I can keep from getting the nerve so inflamed again. I know I still have compression so at some point that may need "work" of some kind.
