Our expert says:
The water-retention, weight gain, and moon-face effects of cortisone preparations generally only manifest if you are treated for long periods on high doses. The effects of the 2 cortisone injections you had, should wear off within a week or two. Just keep up with your Weighless diet and exercise and you should be fine. Don't drink too much water as this can wash important minerals out of the body - stick to 4 cups a day in addition to your other liquids.
