Post Injection Treatment and Its Side Effect

 

Here are the things to know What to Expect and do After your injection:

  • You may experience pain in and around the site of the injection for 1– 3 days and your pain may be a bit worse than it was before the injection. This is normal.
  • Please ice the injected area for 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off, up to 8 times a day to assist in pain relief.
  • Please take anti-inflammatory medication if you are allowed. This includes drugs such as over-the-counter Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil, and Motrin. Prescription medications include Naproxen, Celebrex, Mobic, and Meloxicam.
  • Please rest your arm/shoulder/hand, etc. for a full 24 hours. Then resume only light activity and refrain from any strenuous activity for the next two days.
  • Please call our office, 941-378-5100, if you notice any redness around the injection site.
  • Some swelling around the injection site is normal and should go away in a few days. If the swelling persists or increases, please call the office.
  • Remove the band-aid 15 minutes after the injection.
  • Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
  • If you are diabetic, the injection may cause your blood sugar to increase for 1 to 2 days. Please check your blood glucose levels and use insulin when needed.
