    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 I’m left handed

    I got an MRI after an ER visit and Doctor visit

    I’m 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 they’ll operate, otherwise they’ll do pain management, maybe cortisone shot, and PT (it’s 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

    You’ve 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.

    What did your guys rotator cuff injuries feel like? My right shoulder has been fucked since 2 springs ago when I dislocated/tore labrum/broke part of the socket. Never got it fixed. Did tons of PT etc. Has felt OK.

    Anyway a couple good falls in the last two weeks on skis. One of them HARD onto a cat track with my arm down by my side directly onto shoulder/head. Feels like a knife going in my back above shoulder blade and below acromion. Worse at rest and when laying down. I have an appt with my shoulder guy but its almost 2 weeks from now. Fuck.

    Know a guy who was on a Grand trip recently, half way down he was putting his spray skirt on one morning and his shoulder ripped out. Whirly bird ride out to hospital. Cutting followed, down for a year plus.

    Damn. What's crazy is that I'm sure I damaged my shoulder in some crash the last two weeks. What really set this pain off: Buckling my fucking boots. After the second bad wreck sometime last week (deep pow, shooting photos and skiing fast and augered a ski into the deep and rag dolled) I was getting off the chair and struggling to get the hardest buckle on my boot closed. Reaching down with extended arm. POP. Like literally something broke loose. Not a "weird air in the joint pop" but like a ligament finally tearing through kinda pop. So fucking weird. Now my shoulder is on fire half the time.

    Slow backward twisting fall on refrozen steep.
    Spun around and down with my right arm up and took the blow right under the armpit.
    Kinda heard a pop.
    Did not feel good.

    CBD Skirub
    Self massage (not that kind)
    Hot tub
    Shower
    9hrs sleep
    Hot tub
    Shower
    Nap

    4 Aleve over 2 days

    Felt better, but still fucking aches.

    Skiing's been good though.

    After modern medicine said i was fucked and I would just have to wait until my shoulder unfroze I went to a Traditional Chinese acupuncture guy Andy soo hoo and he was good for my shoulder

    he would stick about 4 or 5 in the hand, a couple in the elbow, some in the shoulder and up into the hairline maybe 20 pins in all and just let me sit there with a heat lamp for 45 minutes, eventualy he hooked me up to the Tens and shocked me

    it unfroze the shoulder but I would say it quit being of any use at about 10 sessions

    and the next women I dated lit up like an xmas tree after all that Tens

    Try some RLT on those banged up shoulders in addition. The heat from the red light and IR will feel good.

    Tore my rotator cuff a couple of years ago, had it repaired 6 months later. Pain subsided after a week or so but I couldn't lift my arm above my chest or behind my back without a bit of pain and absolutely zero strength. Could ride a bike, DH included, and do most other activities without any issues.

    Also, didn't we tell you to get that fucking thing fixed then? Do it soon so you can be recovering during mud season.
