Saw the ortho regarding my shoulder again. The physical therapy hasn't really helped that much. One exercise made the shoulder worse. E-stems helps for about 15-30 minutes after it shuts off but that's about it. At least it gives me a little reprieve from the aching/pain. Dr has me scheduled for a scope on my shoulder in hopes that he will be able to repair the tears, remove the arthritis and do a total once over of my left shoulder. If he can't repair it all then he'll have to do an open surgery on it while he's in there. Surgery is scheduled for December 20, 2012 but the surgery scheduling nurse has moved me up to the first one on the cancellation list seeing as how it's already been 3 months since I injured my shoulder. She said that they do get cancellations (especially around the holidays) but they don't usually get them until the day before the other person's surgery date. I told her that was just fine with me and I'll take it if one should come open. Praying a cancellation is soon!!!! At least then I won't have to sit back and wait and wonder for another 5-6 weeks!!! Hate the waiting game!!!! I will be glad to have this over and done with!! Between my broken foot and my shoulder, it sure has put a damper on my exercising/walking. Can't wait until I can walk around our park with my husband and the dogs again!! I can actually say that I miss my walking even if it is only a mile around our park!! Will keep ya'll informed.
