Re: [IPk] Re - Frozen Shoulder


I have been in hospital a number of times, and the very first time they put 
me on a sliding scale insulin drip -total nightmare.

They actually got it wrong and sent me hypo, even though I was continually 

Hospitals do vary though, but I ahve to say that my experience at both 
Private nad NHS has been very much the same, they really didn't know what to 
do. So the last time I went in, I insisted that I wear my pump, and my 
consultant agreed with me, he was horrified at the last incidence as much as 
I was and agreed that I should "self manage" when I went in.

Having said that if I was under for longer than a couple of hrs I may need 
to rethink :)

Good luck with the frozen shoulder.
