Doctors are awesome!

12 posts in this topic

So I was playing basketball back in 2003, went up to the hoop, got hit, came down on my hand with my arm outstretched. Ouch. Urgent care doc diagnosed a minor rotator cuff tear, told me to rest it and take enough ibuprofin to keep me from feeling my thoughts. Didn't help, my doc diagnosed the same thing. Finally, after having some problems with it the last few weeks, I had it looked at again. Torn labrum (not torn labia as I inadvertently told my boss). Surgery is an option, dealing with it is also an option. Didn't even get any drugs. Stupid doctors.

I've been there, tore my labrum, bicep, rotator cuff, and took half the head of my humerus off in my left shoulder after three dislocations and got surgery to fix that when I was 16. Unfortunately on the third dislocation, the hospital felt it was necessary to relocate my right shoulder, even though my left shoulder was dislocated. Long story short, my right shoulder had a torn labrum and an stretched rotator cuff and I got surgery on that when I was 20. Yeah no drugs or cortisone shots worked to bring the pain down to a reasonable level so the surgeries were the only option. Only thing that sucks since then is when the weather gets damp and cool the shoulders get bothersome and the bursitis/arthritis is a pain every so often.
