Chemicals Are Wondrous Things
The full effects of the cortisone have kicked in, and I have regained almost full range of motion in my shoulder. There is weakness, however; for instance, if I extend my arm in a certain position and raise it while resisting a weighted object, then there is pain.
Immediately after getting the shots this morning, there was miniscule improvement, if any. Then as the hours passed, my shoulder began to feel better and better. It wasn't until about six hours later, though, when I could say there was significant improvement. And now--voila!--tonight, ready to surf.
Gonna get a massage tomorrow morning. Then will head to the beach right after.
