Cortisone Injection Question
« on: April 13, 2016, 08:17:45 PM »
Hi doctors,
I recently had some injections following some buildup of scar tissue underneath the areola (6 months post op). I'm just wondering if it would be safe to still do workouts that involved the chest muscle. 
If it's not recommended to do any physical exercise following the injections, how long should i expect to wait before working my chest muscles?
Thanks!

Check with your surgeon. I think it's fine.

I allow my patients to work out without any limitations after Kenalog injections.
