Sorry, friends. I’ve not been posting much. My right shoulder started hurting in mid-May and hasn’t gone away. The pain at times is excruciating.
I was referred to a sports medicine doctor this past Monday. He diagnosed my right shoulder with rotator cuff injury with tendonitis, as well as bursitis and trapezius strain.
I don’t know how long it will take me to get better. He gave me anti-inflammatory gel to rub on four spots of my shoulder twice a day, and directions on how to move my right arm to allow for healing of the tissue and muscles in my shoulder.
I had an x-ray and CAT scan of my shoulder and neck last week. It didn’t show anything torn or pinched.
The sports medicine doctor said he does have injections he could give me via ultrasound guidance and that they aren’t cortisone shots. He does numb the area before putting in the needles. My course of treatment, I think, will last at least six weeks. He has the shots as the last resort, but I’m getting tired of the pain and may request them earlier. I’ve already called his nurse just a little while ago because of the pain.
If I try and calculate how many hours I’m able to sit up (only when eating) and stand and walk (up to 10 minutes), that would probably be around 45 minutes the whole day. 😦
So, basically, I’ve been miserable. Praying healing comes sometime in the near future.
I’m not sure when I’ll get another post out. Thank you for sticking with me.
