I went to the podiatrist today for a follow-up appointment regarding my toe problem.
After I described the positive effects of the steroid shot he gave me two weeks ago, he said he was not going to give me another shot. Instead, he prescribed Voltaren, an ointment to rub on my toe to alleviate any pain.
He said see how it goes after four weeks and get back to him then if I am still hurting. He expects that my toe problem will be gone by then.
He added that in the meantime, I should avoid climbing ladders and kneeling. That's OK by me.
