Doctor visit today

Monday, August 23, 2010

I have been having some problems with my right shoulder for over a year. I did all of the things I was supposed to do and then got an MRI. The results said I needed to have surgery. Instead of having surgery I opted out. Last October I got the final injections that seemed to take care of it for a while. Two weeks ago, started having problems again and finally went to the doctor today. I have finally given in and am going to have surgery Sept. 2. My shoulder hurts so much that I just can't do it any more because of the pain. It is not going to get well without surgery. There will be a 12 week recuperating time that I am not looking forward to. That's it for now.

    Hi! I had a shoulder injury years ago (trying to do a cheerleading move with my daughter's team that should only be attempted by teenagers, LOL) and the rehab was the most painful thing I had ever experienced... however, I did NOT give up, and today can lift my arm completely overhead. So hoping that you will only feel BETTER AND BETTER after treatment/surgery & rehab. One thing to look forward to - shoulder pain makes sleeping SO DIFFICULT - you'll finally be able to get comfortable and well rested!!!

    Just think how you'll be when the recovery time is over! Soooo much better and hopefully pain free and able to enjoy things you haven't done in a long time. Wish you were here so I could help you afterwards though.
