Re: Mri analysis

Well the surgeon report is not what I really wanted to hear but, atleast I now know what lies ahead.
The nerve damage was worse than would have been wished for, and may never return to the old days. Earlier intervention unlikely to have resulted in a better outcome.
The left shoulder, deltiod & bicep muscles are very wasted and may never return either. The right is not quite so bad. I now have to stop further deterioration with Gym xcercises.
I am to have another MRI to see if anything was missed.
This surgeon, a woman, was really good in explaining what was happening and she will do the next stage if required. the origional is away on a sebatical for 6 mths.
