Apparently this has been a busy week for everyone! My best wishes to you all!
So, I saw my ortho-surgeon today for another cortizone shot through the shoulder blade into the shoulder joint. Afterwards I said, "I have a really high tolerance to pain, but this is just unbelievable!" He stopped in his little cocky way, turned and looked at me and said, "You have one of the highest tolerances to pain of any patient I have. First of all, your adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) is one of the most painful issue a person can have and then with diabetes it is over the top." He then said, "The shot I just gave you, I have seen it take a grown man to their knees many times so, I'd say you have a very high tolerance to pain." Once again, I needed validation! I also wanted to know because it hurts so bad! He also said it is completely frozen and I have a choice of intensive therapy or surgery. One or the other. Wow, when does it slow down? I know it doesn't end, but at least it could slow down! I'm going for intensive therapy! Wish me luck!
Thanks to everyone who has left a posts and well wishes through all of these things.
