How long will this last if it is normal and how bad should I let it get before I call my surgeon?
Looks like your question hasn’t been answered in some time. Cortisone injections are painful and you should have been warned. No doubt you called your Doctor if the pain didn't subside. Cortisone injections (eg Kenalog, Celestone) reduce the inflammation in the knee and take several days to work. The effects can last up to several weeks.
