While my dentist appointment was a breeze, nothing the matter that they could find, my second appointment of the day was with an orthopedic surgeon with regard to my bum left shoulder. That wasn’t quite as breezy.
I’ve told you all before that after I had rotator cuff surgery back almost a decade ago, I did not, like the very very bad bad girl I am, complete enough PT, leaving my left arm with limited mobility.
I’ve gone through PT since to no avail so I thought it time to discuss other options. Seems my cuff replacement has moved and a bone has attached itself to the new ball, making it impossible, no matter how much PT I have, for me to raise my hand over my head again.
UNLESS….drum roll please…..I have what the doctor called a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement.
I gasped in horror at the thought and left, so angry at myself. This is all my own dumb fault and I feel like banging my head against the wall to shake out some brain cells. It’s complicated by some arthritis in the shoulder, surely from not moving it enough.
With something this major, I’m going to get at least three, maybe four opinions. Ugh ugh ugh.
The good news of the day is no one yet has won either the PB or MM and I bought two tickets for each. C’mon baby, c’mon.
I left the house this morning with the temps outside cool and the breezes lovely. came back home to the house sweltering hot and zero breeze. Back to the a/c humming. ConEdision is happy.
