So a quick story and my history.
On July 16, 2006 I crashed a mountainbike, went over the handlebars, fractured C7, T3, T4, T5, and my right collarbone was shattered into 4 pieces. Spent two days in the hospital after numerous C scans and xrays, Came home in a minerva brace, had the collarbone pinned 3 weeks later. The minerva brace came off in mid October and the pin was removed on Halloween.
My right shoulder was clicking and never stopped hurting, It was scoped on February 28, 2007 and nothing much was found. Lots of PT, Chronic right shoulder pain, s back pain. After two C-spine injections in fall of 2007 a second MRI was done December 1, 2007 and low and behold they found Avascular necrosis on the end of the humerous.
January 9, 2008 I had a partial shoulder replacement, cap put on the humerous. Extremely painful recovery. I suffered through PT all summer last year and made it through till the cold weather hit. At that point I could not manage the pain any more and returned to Hydrocodone use.
Now the one year point has past. No one has offered up a physical reason for the pain. It just is.
I am depressed, go figure. Life sucks. I don't do anything as anything makes the pain worse. I still go to wokr though I do nothing.
I received another opinion in December. They recomended a Nerve stimulator trial. I am now trying to get that trial approved. Still need the psych testing down. It is scheduled on Wednesday, but I am so depressed I do not believe it will be approved.
I'll quit for now,
