I went to see the anesthesiologist today and had all my lab work done and ECG etc. So we are set for the 26th of April. I have one thing going for me and that is-the Surgeon who is doing the surgery is highly recommended. Kind of a drag I will be in traction for the summer. Hopefully it will work out and I will never have to suffer another dislocation.
Everyones pain is different. It just so happens on impact my rotator cuff liquified-gross. I kept asking "well were would it go?" How can something like that just disappear-well it can but not to often-could only happen to me!
What happened with you?
Well while waiting on my Lumbar Fusion I sharted having shoulder pain which kept worsening so the week before my fusion they did an MRI which showed
impingement syndrome with partial tear. I did not believe this though because the pain was so severe. They went in laparoscally but then found a
mess so had to open up my shoulder, I had part of my collar bone removed the acromion was shaved down, a large to massive tear in the supraspinatus, the tendon had completely retractred and my humeral head was exposed,and a smaller tear in the intrtaspinatus. So recovery has been quite painful.
Pls keep us aprised of your surgery outcome I will be praying for a great outcome.
