    Cortisone shots at base of thumb

    Has anyone here had cortisone shots to relieve arthritis pain at the base of the thumb? If so, was it helpful and how long did it last for you? I'm getting to the point where I'm going to have to start taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen before longer rides because of it, thinking about trying cortisone instead if it works and lasts a while.

    I did and it never helped. Had surgery. After recovery it has been great. Zero pain. Had the surgery in November and put time trial bars on the bike on my trainer. Was riding it after a week. Had the Arthrex CMC mini titerope procedure. Would recommend it to anyone with this problem.
