AT AGE 16 MY SON'S SCALPULA WOULD EXTEND AND THROUGH TIME HE DISLOCATED HIS SHOULDER. FOR ALMOST FOUR YEARS, INSTITUTIONS LIKE SPINE CLINIC IN KENTUCKY, TWO DIFFERENT BONE/JOING SPECIALIST BOTH IN INDIANA AND KENTUCKY AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, THE METHODIST SPORTS CLINIC IN INDIANAPOLIS HAD DIAGNOSED MICHAEL AS HAVING NERVE DAMAGE AND THAT WAS WHY THE ONE SCALPULA COULD OT OPERATE........NOW MICHAEL IS NOW LOOSING STRENGTH IIN HIS OPPOSITE ARM.......I INSISTED ON MY LAST DOCTOR FINDING AN SPECIALIST TO LOOK AT HIS CASE....WE ARE NOW HAVING TO HAVE BIOPSIES AND BEEN TOLD THAT ALL THESE YEARS THESE OTHER DOCTORS HAVE MISDIAGNOSED...AND INTERPRETED EMGS DIFFERENT...MEANING DIFFERENCES OF OPINION---IS IT NERVE DAMAGE OR MUSCLE DETERIORATION. WHY CAN'T SOMEONE OUT THERE MAKE ALL DOCTORS BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR FINDING ANSWERS....INSTEAD OF THINKING THEIR OPINION IS THE ONLY RIGHT ONE...OR IS IT NOT WANTING TO ADMIT...."THEY DON'T KNOW" THAT'S ALL IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN FOR ME TO ASK OTHER DOCTORS TO INVESTIGATE. AFTER FINDING OUT ABOUT MY MICHAEL....WE ARE NOW HAVING TO QUESTION WHETHER OUR OTHER SON WHO IS 16 YEARS OLD REALLY NEEDS SURGERY TO TIGHTEN UP LIGAMENTS IN HIS SHOULDERS......DOES HE HAVE MD symptoms instead Parents ......QUESTION DOCTORS AND INSURANCE......NO ONE PERSON CAN HAVE ALL THE ANSWER....I wish I had known these symptoms earlier....My kids deserve to know how to plan their future, family, children..... thanks for listening....i needed to vent
