    Hello J437,

    No, I haven't had any injection of any kind. I would

    Like to know what kind of injection it is, if you

    get it, and how it works out for you so please keep

    Me posted. Much success.

      I have to apologize here. I wasn't aware that the injection was the cortisone injection. I have had one of those. It helped marginally.

      I was unsure because xray was not used. My

      Orthopedic Dr. said I would only be allowed one more at most if that, as I already have

      beginning osteoporosis. I am also not diabetic which may or may not make a difference why xray would be used. I do understand the concerns and happy that you are getting such a huge response. Good health to you. smile

    What are you having done - hydrodilatation or just a guided cortisone injection?  I thought they were somewhat cautious about giving cortisone to diabetics?  I have had success with hydrodilataion (I'm not diabetic) - the leaflet for the procedure said it was done under x-ray but they actually used untrasound for the guidance.  Either way, it ensures the injection gets exactly to the right spot for it to be of most use.  I had mine done a couple of months ago and was pain free after a couple of days and am gradually  getting my movements back.

      Oh I am so happy for you Maria, that is wonderful news that you are pain free. 

      Yes, good topic idea.  The Cortizone gives Diabetics very high blood sugar and that essentially slows/stops all healing in the body until the blood sugar returns to a normal range (between 80-120).  Personally, I have to increase my regular or quick acting insulin in order to bring down the blood sugar. Especially if I take sterroids of any kind. It's a double edged sword.

    HI, Yep, Guided steroid injections under Xray. Had two in one go. One in the top of the joit and one in the bottom. Gave some relief for about 2 months then pain was back to normal. I did experience a desire to have sugary type foods a lot. Interesting to see your outcome. But if you think it may help then go for it as FS is debilitaing enough.

      The hydrodilatation is done right into the glenohumeral joint.  I have been enjoying eating a lot of sugery foods - but mainly because of all the boxes of chocolates I was given over Christmas!

      Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    I had pain from my shoulder through my elbow. While getting my injection under x-ray I felt excruciating pain in my elbow. That pain subsided within a couple of minutes. In about 2 days all pain in my elbow was gone. Which has been a great relief!

    The injection did nothing for the pain in my arm above my elbow, including my shoulder.

    It did not improve r.o.m.

    Hi j437, I had the hydro dilation injection last year in May, it was fantastic how quickly it worked, I had movement almost straight away after having just 20% movement before it. It hasn't been a complete cure, but has worked in that it's alleviated the unbearable pain I was in and given me more movement. I still have nights where I can't sleep because I can't lie on that side....... But! I have no regrets glad I had this done. Good luck j437

    Thanks for your reply J437. As I appreciate everyone's reply, you've all given me something to ask my Dr. When I see him next week. This whole

    thing is new to me. I'll have to see where we go from here. There seems to be a variety of treatments that work for different people in different stages of this horrible disease. So for

    Now I suppose I will put the injection questions on the back burner. Thanks alot everyone for all your

    answers. : )
