My ortho surgeon has scheduled me for shoulder arthroscopy.
Aug. 21st , is as soon as they could get me in. As you know my NS, had ordered 4 wks. of PT. , never even got to work on me. my OS appt. was today. and he wants to get my shoulder taken care of, he said there is a chance that taking care of shoulder , rotary cuff tear, etc. might help with some relief from my neck. Herniation will still be there but it could help. so i have someone who is doing something to start. we will have to play everything else by ear from there. he said i will be a arm sling 6 wks., left for me, that is one good thing i am right handed. then 6 more wks. of slowly being able to raise it. it is a slow process, like the spine. so i am looking at least probably thru the holidays. it seems so far . I then will know where i stand for my neck . i go back next wk. for more instructions, order lab work,etc. so being a neckie and a shoulder person is no fun. don't know which pain is coming from where!!!!! wish me luck , its not for a few wks. but at least i have a date. i will be around thanks for listening LEO :O
