If yes then please contact your GP to check if it is still ok for you to have a steroid injection.
If you are Type 1 diabetic and/or your blood sugars are not always stable you must check with your GP if they are happy for you to have a steroid injection (we recommend that patients with recent HbA1c above 8.5% (70mmol/mol) should obtain approval from their GP before booking). This relates to steroid injections only.
If your most recent INR was greater than 2.5 you must check with your GP if they are happy for you to have an injection.
Steroid injection may sometimes temporarily raise intraocular pressure which can exacerbate Glaucoma. If you have suffered with visual disturbance after a steroid injection previously or you have glaucoma, we recommend that you discuss this with your Ophthalmologist before booking..
Unfortunately we are not able to offer injections to patients during pregnancy.
Please contact your haematologist to check whether you are able to have an injection.
Please contact your GP or oncologist and check whether injection therapy (steroid injection) is appropriate.
Did you answer yes to either of the two questions above regarding COVID vaccination?
