Cortisone Injection

I have been having trouble with my left shoulder 7 months on from my mastectomy on my right breast. Pain when doing up my bra or reaching backwards. I can only think it is because I have used my left shoulder much more since the mastectomy. It is not a frozen shoulder but the orthopaedic surgeon wants to give me a cortisone injection. Is this safe to have. Thank you.

If it were me I'd have my doctor prescribe physical therapy for me and to a therapist who specializes in breast cancer/mastectomy and lymphedema patients. I'm not a fan of needles though that will do the job, temporarily. Long term? I'd choose therapy since I believe you use it or lose it.

Best wishes
