I can't remember what this product is called but it appears to be a way to help with oil lube, a silicone like oil? It may be worth discussing it with your repair shop after you find this product. It's a small can with about an ounce of r134a for injecting it into the suction side with the system running.
To hell with the repair shop at this point. I'm sick of getting jacked around by all these turds. I've been to 7 shops since Saturn closed and they've all basically sucked. This place was my last hope.

I'll look into your suggestion and maybe try it with a friend who knows some things about auto AC. Thanks!
