Initial diagnosis was 11/2010. I got a cortisone shot and took roughly 18 PT sessions. All got better by March 2011. May 2011 the pain returned and my ROM was decreasing rapdily again. I got another cortisone shot but no more PT per doctor. Early August 2010 no improvement what so ever so a 3rd cortisone shot. No good so I changed doctors for another opinion. I went on a NSAID for 6 weeks. Initially, the pain was greatly reduced by my ROM was still poor.
Mid-October 2011, I had arthoscopic surgery to clean-up my capsular, repair a tear in my rotator cuff, impingement and bicep temonty (sp?). Things were really mobing along for the next 6-8 weeks and returned to work. By January I was back at the same point as I was before my surgery.
Back on he NSAID and 24 PT sessions. After my iniital 12 sessions my QuickDash score was 67.....good. Started my 2nd round of PT and after 12 sessions my condition got worse. My quickDash score fell to 34...most recebnt one is now 27.8
Continued on NSAID mediciation with no relief and not sleeping but 2-3 hours at best daily. Saw my doc who gave me another cortisone shot last Wednesday and nothing except balloon my BGs into the 350s. Doc mentions lots of scar tissue when trying to inject needle for shot.
At don;t know what to do at this point.......another surgery.....maybe open surgery.
Anyone in a similair position?
