I have been going to Dr Hatzidakis at Western Orthopaedics in Denver (303-321-1333) for cortisone injections for the past couple of years but the time has come that I now need to go forward with having a total shoulder replacement surgery on both of my shoulders, the first will be in August. I have done a lot of research and this guy has come highly recommended by so many! He is considered the best in the area, especially since he specializes in "shoulders only"! I checked out a rehab facility yesterday and even their staff praised his abilities! I had the opportunity to also visit with a patient who was there and learned that she had just had her shoulder repaired by him just a couple of weeks ago and was totally happy! So that's where I will be going without a second thought!

Thanks! Can't say I am looking forward to it, but it will be nice to have the pain gone and the use of my arms again!

yes, great sense of humor :)

well, last night, my shoulder was HURTING BAD from the injection. I could not move it and could not get comfortable sleeping. Today, it only hurts if I move it, so I walking around my left arm cris-crossed across my chest. I hope it is because the fluid has the area inflamed and it will go down. I called the doc's office and they confirmed this is usually the case the first or two.

The cortisone has made it in! My shoulder quit hurting last night. As a matter of fact, last night was the first night in YEARS that I didn't have to focus on where my left arm was to be comfortable enough to go to sleep. it usually has be elevated on a pillow and over my head.

UPDATE DAY THREE AFTER CORTISONE INJECTION: the side effects. I am SO BLOODY ITCHY! Since the 2nd night, I am itching all over and the only relief is SCRATCHING. You should have seen my "hair-do" this morning when I woke up from scratching my head so much. and it's not a little itch, it is an immediate big itch. I read up that itching is a side effect. I guess I know what else to add on my list of allergic reactions to drugs now.

Watch out if you are driving, Angela. Glad the cortisone is otherwise doing the job!
