Pain, Pain, Go Away...Running Around in the Rain Today!

Heading out to my orthopedic surgeon appointment in the pouring rain! I'm trying not to freak out that it will be something bad. I figure if I we were looking at surgery, then I would be in pain all the time and I'm not there yet so hopefully there's something they can do instead. Happy thoughts!

*****UPDATE****
Just got back. Doc thinks I have severe inflammation and the fact that I was trying to avoid using it just aggravated it more when that movement happened. She shot me up with some lidocaine and depo medrall, and next week I have to start some physical therapy to get that range of movement back. I'm just ecstatic that it's not a tear and there is no surgery!

I hope you get better soon. As a fellow Georgian, I can't send the kids outside to play for my hour or freedom.

Yea! Hubby fell off his bike, several years ago, and really hurt his shoulder. He had to go thru therapy, too.

Good news. PT and time will heal all.

So glad no surgery is necessary Melinda! I have been in PT for several months now and it has helped me immensely. Good luck!
