 Bellco,

Glad you are getting there. It is great when you have total ROM!

Re: weight loss. First, exercise with my shoulder pulley and my bicycle trainer. I had the foot issue and had to stop walking, so I got on the trainer. I think the pulley helped too with twisting etc. Plus, I cut out all the carbos and pastries and ate better. I had stress with my mom after she fell so I dropped weight then and also in Mexico where I eat much more healthy, less and no car. Unfortunately, I have put about 12 pounds back on due to not so great eating (my living situation) and not as much exercise. I hope to change that soon and get back to the more healthy lifestyle. Friends said I was "too skinny" but I loved it! Stay well!

 Hey Radiator

Its been ages since I have been on here, wow you sound like you are doing well.  How did you lose the weight? My frozen shoulders are pretty okay, I have about 80% ROM and no pain so thats good.  Mexico sounds like a wonderful place to be

 Thanks for asking. My health (knock on wood) has been great. Losing 50 pounds helped tremendously. I have to say, I have gained about 8-10 back. My friends say I needed it, but I say it is always easy to gain and not to lose!

 Golly,

It has been so long since I posted. I got an update from someone responding to old posting. Decided to check in. I see a few of you oldtimers here. I am so, so sorry frosty about your mom and your shoulder. I do hope the shoulder is improving. Stress surely takes a toll on our bodies.

My mother fell last summer and suffered a brain bleed also. She was fortunate to survive. They did bore hole surgery after 2 weeks. She just turned 93. It was a very difficult time for me as my siblings were acting badly. I took off to Mexico for 5 months. It was fabulous. In needed the R and R from all the stress. I hope you have had an opportunity to get some time for you.

I was telling some people about the Adhesive Capsulitis last night. How ironic! Had to be one of the most miserable times of my life, but thanks to this forum, you guys were so helpful and great. Of course I moved on to the foot issue, so it was almost 3 years of some kind of pain and weight gain.

I ended up losing close to 50 pounds, by diet, stress and Mexico travel. I stopped coloring my hair after almost 30 years. What a year. It was a crazy one, but memorable. Now I am searching for work, AGAIN and may be moving to the midwest of the U.S. to achive my goal of retiring in Mexico in 4 years. One never knows what life will bring you. Hope you all are doing great today!

Without getting into a pile of details, I can say that some of the worst moments of my life came to me right in the middle of two frozen shoulders. Not too sure exactly why that would be, but it was. I've learned that humans have an amazing capacity for pain, emotional and physical. I hope you're all doing well.

Hi Frosty

Very sorry to hear about your mum, if there is anything I can do please let me know. I hope things get better for you and your shoulder improves. You are stronger than you know and you will get through this. I will be thinking of you.

Well according to ortho report which I got the other day it's not FS but an impingment at the moment still very sore and painful but I there are other factors affecting my judgement at the moment two weeks agi just after I had the cortisone injection my mum died she had a massive brain bleed and it was literally instantaneous -I gave her CPR which initially worked but when we reached hospital the scans showed that it was just too extensive and sadly she would never have recovered from it so at the moment my head is all over the place my GP thinks part of my pain is related to the stress and grief but also said if it doesn't improve in a month or so then to come back and he will write to the surgeon and bring forward my follow up appt from oct so I can at least go on the waiting list for subacrimonial decompression - sorry if I'm not posting much but my head is all over the place at the moment- animal I am going to see WKP soon so I will call in and see you if I can

Hi Frosty,

Haven't checked in in a while so just saw your two recent posts. So sorry to hear that you may have a second FS coming on; let's hope it's something else that'll resolve quickly but, worst case scenario, you've beaten it once and you will do it again. I know how frustrated you must be feeling though. If you're in WK to see the physio I've just started at the the Marine Lake for the summer. Feel free to drop by and ask for Liz if you fancy a chat! (North end of the lake by Morrisons!)

Take care!

Animal

Frosty, I am so sorry to hear this. I know this is obvious, but, I hope you're just plain wrong. I think most of the time, the second shoulder is an easier time: in pain, duration and outcome. I know there's conflicting and differing opinions on this, but I'd get one cortisone shot if I was you. It worked for me. If it's not FS the shot is relatively benign. Earlier is better for cortisone. Keep us informed.

Well i think after a period of denial I am unfortunately getting another FS in the other shoulder -started with a twinge in my bicep four weeks ago and just seems to have exploded in to real pain and soreness just like the last-no loss of rom yet but I can almost feel it tightening up- here's hoping it goes quicker this time round-the only 'good' thing is that his time I have an appointment with a pain manacement specialist for the first week in June and have a good physio in place this thing sucks!!
