    gojuukata(五十肩) is "frozen shoulder".


    五十(gojuu) = 50 (years old)

    肩(kata) = shoulder

    FYI: There is another word, 四十肩(shijuu kata) literally meaning "40 years old shoulder", which means the same as 五十肩(gojuukata).

    I think you got the word wrong. Datteba is not a word in Japanese.

    gojuukata actually means "it was 50." go is 5, juu is 10, and kata is the suffix meaning past tense. They may have been telling you how much something cost or how long it was?
