Hello

Thank you for seeing me earlier today. I have contacted my Doctors surgery as I was curious as to what dosage was prescribed to me when I had the steriod injection in March and they have confirmed that I had depo medrone 80mg/2ml, do you still think I should have another injection?
Many thanks

That would be a very interesting dose if they actually injected 80mg in 2 ml. Most people inject 40mg in 1ml. I would still try once more with injection because we will get everything properly documented that way, and second injections are sometimes more successful than first anyway. JB

Oh ok that was what the receptionist read from my notes, that sounds like a high dosage I was given before?! I will call tomorrrow to book in to have it done through you and hopefully have more luck this time. Thank u again for your help.

It would have been a high dose but there are various ways of writing the record of what was done which could lead to some ambiguity. JB
