Prescription: Pain :(

April 14th, 2010 at 01:58 am

At least thats the pronosis going forward for me as far as I can tell. I had an X-Ray and MRI of my shoulder that has gotten terrible in the past few months, and at today's doctor appt. I figured I would hear that the rotator cuff was a mess and surgery was needed. Nope, a very minor tear, but the big issue is extreme inflamation and capsulitis. So no surgery (which is good), but a long bout with physical therapy (good I suppose, but painful). Now I need to find a therapist close to work or home, and start into the cult of pain.

I need to keep telling myself "No surgery = good prognosis", other wise I'll probably go crazy.

    If your insurance covers a great PT, then it should lead to a positive healing experience. I know this from my own shoulder injury, which did not require surgery but put me in regular PT for several months. I had a great therapist... by which I mean someone who is smart, funny, and motivating (not to mention attractive, but that was just a side benefit). She did a great job, and my shoulder healed up just fine. Good luck with yours!
