Hello everyone. I had surgery twice on my shoulder and this past September was my last one which was a scope. I’m still having a lot of issues. I can’t deal with the pain from of raising my arm, brushing my hair or washing it. Pushing and pulling doors and just simple things. It snaps,pops and hurts bad. I have ongoing neck issues and my orthopedic Dr thinks my neck issues are contributing to my shoulder pain. Mind you my sleep is disturbed from the time I lay down and all through the night. I had a Mri on Tuesday and if anyone can interpret these, I would be so grateful. Here it goes.
Low grade articular sides tear of the supraspinatus just proximal to the insertion with tendinosis.
Severe degeneration of the labrum with attenuation.
Full thickness articular cartilage loss on the anterior half of the Glenn is. Large inferior glenohumeral osteophytes and large subchondral cysts in the Flemish.
Moderate acromioclaviicular osteoarthritis.
Corticated loose body at the subcapular recess. Mild synovitis.
I know that seems like a lot but I’m scared of what the Dr may have to tell me. There has been several discussions of total shoulder replacement and I’m 43. Thank you for any information. I know my neck isn’t causing all of this pain in my shoulder. I believe this stuff isn’t normal.

I would get a second opinion! I had a shoulder replacement in April last year and I'm 54 and still have pain. I did my physical therapy and still do at home and still can't move my arm over my head . My left arm is going out now and I'm not going to do another replacement.
Hi Tina, I'm so sorry this is causing you pain. It sounds like you have a lot going on.
From reading so much about my own condition I know that the supraspinatus is a tendon on the side of your humerus (top of the arm bone) I think with that being torn you would feel pain on the outside of the arm. All the rest seems to be hurting you as well.
I'm not sure about surgery but I'd suggest getting in touch with the best surgeon you can find.
I would still was get a second opinion. I should of got one. My shoulder was in bad shape I didn't have any other choice than to have a reverse shoulder replacements . I have been in Tire Sales for 23 years so picking up tires and wheels just hurt my shoulder. So good luck and hope you feel better soon.
