I'm a care assistant and my injury happened at work it's quite long winded to explain what exactly happened but it involved my arm being pulled downwards! it didn't hurt until the next evening when I tried to lay on that side in bed. however I continued to work for 2 weeks as I thought it was just a pulled muscle and would get better soon. how ever after those 2 weeks I booked a docs appointment and was told it was a suspected rotator cuff tear.
so far I have seen two doctors and the second sent me for an xray and my bones appear fine, but I understand this cant show the muscles?
I have now been signed off work for two weeks my last day sick was today but I'm going back to the doctors as I'm still in pain through certain movements and feel weakness in that arm.
obviously work cant offer me light duties due to the kind of job it is I'm just really worried about how much time I will end up being off for as I'm currently in probabtion!!
my question is how long have other people been off work for?
sorry for the long winded explanation.
