Is there a Doc in the house that can answer some questions?

I was given a cortizone shot under my Scapular. The MRI showed that it was longer then usual and rubbing my tendons.

The cortizone is just cover up right? Its actually feeling worse now

He said he doesnt want to have to do surgery on it, but cortizone will mess your muscles and crap right?

Any help?

not a doc but I have had cortizone injections before, I think they are more of a placebo effect. They did nothing for me and I was sure I felt worse afterwards, ended up in surgery 6 weeks later. I understtod from the doc they some people say it helps but can cause damage if not used carefully.
