My heart goe's out to you...I have had two shoulder surgerie's and it has
left me with alot of pain and swelling. First, they diagnosed me with
"Impingement Syndrome" went in Orthoscopically removed a whole bunch of
bone spur's, scar tissue, and part of a tendon. Then my doctor and a IME
doctor decided I needed a 2nd surgery and this time opened me up, front
part of the shoulder and did a partial removal of the collarbone and
removed some more bone spurs. I went thru all kinds of physical therapy
and one thing I learned is there is good pain and bad pain. Good pain is
ok but bad pain isn't. And I had too much of the bad so they stopped it.
I still do excercise's at home but I know I have lost strength and motion.
My doctor now tell's me I may never get better. Seems like the more I
do the more pain and swelling I have. But I haven't given up, I am still
trying to find a doctor that can help me figure this out cause I do not
want to live like this for the rest of my life. I have been on pain med's,
muscle relaxer's and sleeping pills. Thank God I do not have an addictive
type personality. I do have an attorney and have had thru out this case.
My feeling is that the bone fragment will cause more the
bone spur's did to my tendon. I would get a second opinion, you are entitled and am sure your doctor wouldn't mind. If I can be of any further
help please feel free to contact me at
Good luck....Bonnie
