Default Frozen Shoulder - MUA

Hi,

I'm a 37 year old female, type 1 diabetic for 21 years and was heavily into sport before this rotten condition started.

I am due to have a MUA (manipulation under anaesthetic) in 2 days time for my frozen shoulder. Have had frozen shoulder for nearly 18 months quite severely and have been in stage 2 for about 3 months.

I am worried that I may be having the MUA too soon into stage 2??
It now no longer hurts at rest, but if I push it out of range, I get a sharp reminder! I get the odd aches during the day also. It's still "completely frozen" as my specialist puts it.

Has anyone had any experience with this where they have done the MUA too soon? Or where it worked early into stage 2?
My specialist is of the opinion that if, as a diabetic, it's left frozen stiff for an extended period, it will be all the harder to get the range of movement back.
He was honest in saying that my chances aren't that high of it working, but it's worth a chance because my diabetes is making the recovery that much slower.

Thanks for any advice.

I'm not sure how relevant my own experience is but 5 years ago, I damaged my shoulder white water kayaking. It was to the point where I could not move it and I was pretty sure, considering how I injured it that I had damaged my rotator cuff.

I went to my doctor and he put his blinders on - he was convinced it was because of living with diabetes for so long (at this time I had already been a type 1 for 46 yrs). He wrote me a prescription (pain killers which I didn't take) and told me to have better control of my BGs

So I went to a clinic, concealed the fact that I had diabetes, got an appointment for physio and now you would never know I damaged my shoulder and I still Kayak and canoe.

I guess what I'm saying is some Doctors have a bios on diagnosis when they know you have been living with diabetes for a long time.

It's good to get a second opinion.

When I had my shoulder issues it was so painful. Worse pain ever! I hope you get it treated properly. All the best!
