I have an MRI on Sunday evening to check my right shoulder which suffered a massive labral tear in it in 2015. I had surgery in February of 2016 to repair it, developed frozen shoulder, had an MUA done and a cortisone injection as well.
This was all done by the middle of July as I needed to be in good enough shape to be on crutches for 6 weeks after ankle surgery in August.
The day after that surgery, they got me up on my crutches so they could try to send me home.
Sheer agony ripped through my shoulder as I started to hop and I could not support my body on my crutches.
Drs refused to check my shoulder to see what I did to it, quite frankly, they couldn't care less.
I wound up staying in hospital 2 and a half weeks, rehab for 2 and a half months due to the shoulder and ankle so I could recover.
Last May I had a revision surgery on my ankle, I wound up being rejected from rehab, so had to stay home.
My shoulder didn't seem too bad at the time, but I wasn't up that much on my crutches.
In June I wound up in inpatient mental health for 2 weeks. Being at home stressed me right out, not to mention I wound up addicted to pain meds. I went through withdrawal for the first week.
After getting the all clear in November fory ankle, I told my surgeon about the trouble I was having with my shoulder. It was extremely painful and was grinding when I moved it. Sometimes it would lock up on me.
My surgeon looked at me, quite concerned that I retore the tear. The MRI will show if I did, and how bad.
I won't find out until the 25th of this month.
I may need another ankle and shoulder surgery, going to be very difficult as I live on my own with no help right now.
Expecting the worst, but trying to stay positive.
