I saw the specialist today and got the results from the MRI and Xray I had done on my right shoulder. It appears there is a rough patch on one of my shoulder bones as well as boney sticky out bit (LOL) on another bone. These are causing the tendons to inflame when they move over the bone. There is calcification of the tendons and inflammation.
Sooo, today I had a cortisone injection(OUCH!). In 6 weeks time we will see if it has had any effect. If not I will need to have keyhole surgery to smooth out these bones and remove the calcification. Even if i don't have the surgery now, I will eventually have to have it. This injection is just a bandaid solution to delay surgery.
Surgery will mean 6 weeks in a sling and no driving and preferably no work. Then 3-6 months recover if all goes well.
Too much down time for this working woman! But if it has to be done then it has to be done, just need to accrue more sick leave LOL
