Cortisone injection today - right shoulder

Involuntarily screamed during the procedure [usually I have a high pain threshold] - it made me cry and then I got into trouble for moving! Most painful thing I've ever experienced, including childbirth! Doctor didn't inject any fluid at all - my shoulder couldn't handle it!

Sore arm, stiff, will post when feeling better later this week!


  1. oh sounds painful too. I hope it gets better soon Lynne.

  2. owwwwww! hope it's better soon.

  3. oh that sounds positively awful. I'm so sorry! Get well soon.

  4. When I was a child, I remember my mother crying when she had this injection. But she didn't bat an eyelid when she slammed her finger in a safe door. So I know it must be REALLY painful. Please recover soon.

  5. Oww - will think positive thoughts for you - sounds awful, you poor thing!

  6. Ouch....

    Hope the pain is worth it. I know childbirth was :-)

    Apart from that hope you had a good holiday.

    Get well soon, and back to the knitting.

  7. Sorry to hear about your shoulder - hope you're feeling better soon.

    I hope you had a good holiday. I've missed the Knitter's Guild 2 months in a row as I had things on on those Saturdays. Hopefully I'll be there next month.

  8. That sounds really nasty and I hope your shoulder is better soon.

    I agree with your comment abut the train along the Hawkesbury. I often travel to Woy Woy and always have knitting I don't have to look at. However, the scenery around Gloucester, Dungog, , Stroud is also beautiful.

    Take care of yourself!

  9. Oh Lynn, you poor chicken. I have had cortisone years ago in my wrist and it's certainly no picnic. Hugs!!!!! Take it easy.
