I finally had a follow up with my orthopedic doc today. I've given her the update and told her that now this pain is now bothering me at night and that I feel worse now than I did when first seeking treatment. She said there's nothing else she can do but there is a surgeon who specializes in shoulder work. If he feels he cannot help me that I am to see a neurosurgeon next. We still don't know if this pain is coming from the shoulder, the herniated discs or both. I meet with him next Monday and hope to get some more definitive answers. :W


  • I had one done way back in February and while it showed some arthritis in two of the rotator cuff muscles there was nothing significant on there. However, at my final PT appointment my therapist said there looks like a problem with the SC joint. I asked today that if there were a problem with it would it not have shown up on the MRI and was told probably not because the MRI is focused on the AC area. I have also had one on my neck and have 3 mild (according to her) cervical herniations.
    Are they going to have to open your shoulder for this resection or can they do it arthroscopically? Forgive my ignorance if that's a stupid question, I don't know anything about resections or how they're done. ;))
