Car Accident in early 2008, I put my hand in front of my face as the Air Bag deployed. ER diagnosed as muscle/tendon/tissue damage. Family DR and I have done Xray Studies showing the rapidly progressing Arthritis at the thumb.
Currently Taking Mobic / Meloxicam and it works (1-2 per day as needed, not everyday). Orthopedic Surgeon has recommended in Civil Litigation Deposition to stop the Mobic/Meloxicam and take Injections such as Cortisone.
I have no side effects from Mobic/Meloxicam and am not addicted to it (I can come off of it at will if need be). Cortisone has a side effect of swelling and pain for 1-2 days after injection which would limit my work on computers.
With all of that info, would you continue with Mobic/Meloxicam or would you take the Injections?
