hello everyone, i just thought i would let you know that i have been in p.t. now for 10 wks. and my shoulder is not any better. my surgery was 8-21-08, and if anything it seems worse. the shoulder pain, and neck pain feels like someone is sticking an ice pick in there trying to dig out. my arm cannot still raise up. the pain, and burning in my upper back. i know it is commen to have shoulder pain with cervical issues. but i arm is still swelled somewhat. i finally made an appt with my P.C. dr., and let him know everything that was going on, and the way i felt. He listened , and told me he was not going to leave me hanging, like i have felt for a long time. so i went mon., and today i get a call from my p.c. dr. telling me that he did talk to my O.S. who did my surgery, and he tells me to STOP all p.t. , and he will see me on my next appt. , which is 12-19 . 2 wks. from today. that is all he said, well i have all these things running thru my head, like nerve damage, scar tissue, maybe i tore it again without knowing it. needless to say it will be a long 2 wks. , i know alot of do alot of waiting on here :W . i still have an appt. with N.S. on the 30th. i do not know what he will be saying to me also.
you know i thought p.t. was helping me somewhat with the strengthening, but these last few sessions my arms are so weak, i cannot even get through them, it like when i first started. my left shoulder is the one i had the surgery on, but also lately my right is bothering me alot also. i feel numbness, and shake, in my arms, and i also have occasionally have things drop right out of my hand. i am at my wits end. please does anyone have any thing to add, i would appreciate it. always LEO :''( :T @)
