Birthday Week Has Been A Bust
Thursday, April 05, 2018
I am thankful for the birthday greetings I have received. My birthday was on Easter Sunday.
I went to church in the morning. It was wonderful to have my family around. We actually celebrated the night before. We went home and in the late afternoon I opened a bottle. My back story is that I have a shoulder replacement due to a fall down a staircase. The shoulder replacement is in the right shoulder, dominant arm.
When I opened the bottle, I heard a loud pop and felt severe pain. My surgeon was not available until today to see me. Although, he did call in a pain prescription. After taking xrays today he diagnosed a rotator cuff tear.
Who knew that I could still get a rotator cuff injury in a replaced shoulder.
What a bummer.
I have been given home physical therapy exercises to do. In 8 weeks he will tell me the next step - do I need another surgery? (I hope not!!!) I hope that there will another remedy.
