I've just had a steroid injection into my shoulder to help with my subachromial bursitis and my tendinitis & tendonopathy. I'm not allowed to use my right arm for 10 days; which includes excessive typing, so I apologise if I am a little absent, I will do my best.
The injection was ultrasound guided and I had an ultrasound scan before the injection. The doc told me that my condition has worsened... He said that my bursa is very significantly thickened and inflamed and that my tendon(s) look inflamed and irritated.
I put off the injection for a while because some of my docs told me it was a great idea others said it wasn't and also because I'm tired of having to have countless medical procedures. So, I followed my emotions and the doctors saying don't.... and things have got worse. It just leaves me wondering, what would have happened if I had got the injection sooner? *sigh* I guess I'll never know.
