I went for a consultation for my shoulders with an Orthopaedic Surgeon today, but I can’t say I left any wiser than I was when I got there.
He asked me a couple of questions and checked the mobility in my shoulders. Then he said they’re unstable, and that’s what causes the pain. Like I didn’t know that already!
He wanted me to keep up the physical therapy for a couple of months, to see if it helps. If it doesn’t we’ll have to consider surgery. He also said 80 % of his patients who have had this kind of surgery are satisfied. They aren’t pain-free, but they can rely on their shoulders again. Either way, I’ll probably continue to be on sick-leave for a while. I’ll have to wait to see what my GP says on Friday.
