    Fucked up shoulder

    I took a good spill onto a bunch of power tools. A couple months ago

    My shoulder is getting worse. Left shoulder and Iím left handed

    I got an MRI after an ER visit and Doctor visit

    Iím scheduled with the Orthopedic Department the 14th of April

    What is this saying?

    Fucked up shoulder

    My upside down buffalo-riding typewriter reading skills are a little slow:

    If your insurance is decent theyíll operate, otherwise theyíll do pain management, maybe cortisone shot, and PT (itís VA so #2)

    Apparently they were impressed with your liver tolerance but decided maybe you should let it recover before hammering it again

    And they think it’s just about previous booze use

    Doctor says probable surgery

    The bursitis doesn’t surprise me. I was a Pitcher up until I was 13. I blew my shoulder out. Shock waves into my hand if I even threw a rock.
    Sorry about the upside down. I may or may not correct it

    Your shoulder has bad arthritis. There's no simple surgery for that. Total shoulder someday, but I'd try an injection and some rehab (for shoulder and liver!) first.

    It doesn't matter what the radilologist thinks abut yur shoulder, only what the ortho says.
    You have significant liver disease and need t stop drinking.

    This bears repeating

    Youíve got two issues, shoulder arthritis and cirrhosis

    actually I did stop drinking And was told my liver is a little fatty, normal size and if I stay healthy it will get better.

    But thank You, I have abused myself over the years, repeatedly and I am paying for it.

    A liitle fatty and subtle nodularity are still bad when it comes to the liver. Glad you stopped drinking. As long as your liver blood tests are ok and as long as you continue to avoid alcoohol as well as liver-toxic meds and hepatitis (have you been checked for that/) you should be OK. Obviously there was a reason your doc ordered the liver ultrasound so maybe the blood tests aren't great, oor have been off in the past.

    Repeated High enzyme output Maybe I will post my latest round of blood tests. The rest of the world gets to see them why not my internet Ski buddies.
    On a lighter note, I requested A full battery of VD tests. 7 Viles of blood and a piss test. I did not hear back from the Doc or Nurse = Clean?
    Dr, filled my Viagra prescription.

    Either the doctor or the lab should provide online access to your test results through a patient portal. Or call the docs office and have them mail you the results, at the very least.

    ask the nurse ut and see what happens. If she says yes you'l know you're clean. If she says no, she has common sense.

    Ortho appointment done. I have a bruised bone. Hematoma inside the big ball that is my left shoulder with allot of swelling inflammation around the Bicep tendon . Nurse Practitioner says It might take a year to heal. I have to use the shoulder / arm. Even if it hurts, I have to exercise it. She gave me a shot from 2 directions front and back. I will be attending physical therapy.

    she said I must have hit something really hard.

    Need more Viagra will call Monday

    These were the results of my MRI:
    I am just going to do daily PT until I need it replaced, most likely. The only thing it is really affecting is weightlifting over my shoulders, and chronic pain.
    Oh, well.
