cortisone shot before TAH?

I'm scheduled for a TAH on June 17. I've been having pain in my left arm for many months and finally went to my doctor. He says I may have bursitis or tendonitis. He referred me to an orthopedist for a possible cortisone shot. He first recommended physical therapy, but there's no time. I could only get an appointment no sooner than 6 days before surgery. Does cortisone interfere with post-op healing? I'm concerned.

Talk to your doctor about the risks in your case, but be sure to meniton the surgery. The benefit may outweigh the risk.

I take cortizone periodically for asthma and once had to do something else because of healing concerns about an upcoming lap.

I was having treatments for my elbows before surgery too...which included coritsone. I had my therapist contact my gyn. and was told to stop all anti-inflammatory medications 10 days prior to surgery. PLEASE call your gyn. and check this out.

thanks so much for the tips. I've been doing a little self-physical therapy, and the anti-inflammitory med is helping.

Cortisone Shots

I get shots every two weeks for my shoulder. My Gyn made it very clear to cancell my appt for June 3rd even though my surgery isn't scheduled until June 25th. He said cortisone has a tendency to affect your healing. I would definetly ask the doc.
