Been gone for a bit doing recovery from injuries - -
Had to quit physical therapy in May, darn....it was causing flare-up of pain had after collision in right shoulder. Well with all the focus having to be my c-spine & t-spine, nerve compression on multi-level, everyone assumed the right shoulder pain was from upper spine issues - - nope !
Fast forward, had x-ray then MRI & visit to orthopedic shoulder specialist. Diagnosis not good I have - -
" full completed tears of ligaments in rotator cuff"
Very shocked, I thought well maybe worsening arthritis, possibly cartilage loss, fragment of deteriorated bone chip issues (which I had in my knee)
Need to have surgery to repair, OSurgeon said it will require arthroscopic surgery, extensive repair, 4 anchors to bring ligaments to attach again to the bone.
Know some of you have had shoulder problems/surgery. Ron, believe you have had 2 surgeries for this ??? and others ??
Love to hear from you.....hear this is painful surgery / slow recovery (5 wks in slain, 10 wks no driving, 6-8 wks begin physical therapy).
p.s. this is now priority over anterior & posterior c-spine & t-spine surgery off for sure (it was tabled for a few months to see if symptoms of nerve compression could stabilize & thank God they have - - it's tough to have 3 surgeries ahead of me now ugggghhh
