The pain in my right shoulder started May 2018 and continued to get worse. Multiple diagnosis, injections pain medications and PT only for the pain to continue and intensify. Then March 2019 the pain in my left shoulder began and my ability to do the simplest of tasks (putting on a bra, washing my hair, putting on deodorant, sleeping..) became impossible or took so MUCH time that they leave me completely exhausted. By summer end, my 3rd Orthopedic Doctor diagnosed me with bi-lateral adhesive capsulitis. I have received 4 cortisone shots and 1 IR injection in my right shoulder and will receiving my second IR injection on this week. The left shoulder has only received 1 IR injection. Has anyone else had IR Injections and have they worked for a prolonged period of time? If this IR injection does not work, I will be moving forward with arthoscopic shoulder surgery in January. Has anyone had success with arthoscopic surgery?
