Ok to day I went on to the orthipedic several weeks after the MIR. I have a torn rotor cuff must be small for the Doctor did nt jump right for an operation ,which I am not in favor of right now . Good no operation which t o Doctor muight not help at all but to get me out of pain but I might never get the full use off arm no pills to take to correct this. I am going back for 8 weeks of streach threapy 3 times a week. Plus they are to give me things to do at home when not going to the clinic. also no guarantee that this will get it all rifght again! Oh Yes he sent the Nurse in with 2 needles over and inch long I am sure to give me the shots in the shoulder now I have brusies

The word MRI attracted my attention, while scrutinizing your list of discussions. I had gone through that, because the doctor had suggested to do a thorough scan for the vertebrata to confirm for a slipped-disc. I feel very uneasy, for being strapped in a confined space, with echos of deafening noise. And because of the slipped disc, my back is so painful and I wriggle half way of the scanning. I got reprimanded by the MRI scan specialist because the scan need to be done all over again. A slight movement will interfere the integrity of the scan image. I suppose you are going through much more than me. (My slipped disc recovered 6 years ago) Good luck and all the best to you.

Thanks and glad that you are back safely. Ya, I am grateful that my disc-slip recovered after 8 months. I was expecting it would take a much longer time to heal. I am quite concerned about your condition. Hope you can getting well soon. Do you take supplements like ling chi? It will help.

Glad to hear that another surgery is not something you have to deal with...however, the torn rotor cuff must be very painful. The stretching sounds like it isn't going to all that comfortable either. Hearing that you might not regain full use sure doesn't seem fair after everything you've already overcome. I am really sorry to hear about all this my friend. I posted a discussion on what makes people cranky before coming over here..I would say you have a lot to feel cranky about right now. Warm thoughts and much love.. Raia

Hope the fish oils cause less discomfort that the BP pills. Your body sure has had a lot to contend with. What a constitution you have! You just keep on keeping on...moving through whatever obstacle is in your way. What a trooper. Take care...and we'll keep in touch. Hugs... Raia

I'm glad you're not having surgery my dear but it sounds a very painful condition. Stretching exercises...now I just know that's gotta hurt. I hope you see some improvement soon. Good luck with it. Hugs to you.
