I Think We May Have Found A Solution

Ok friends I have been yet again to the doctor for my shoulder! The last time I went I never actually saw the doctor because I walked out after waiting an hour and half on him and never hearing anything.  So this time I did not have much optimism about the appointment.

When the doctor came in I had no clue what was going to happen.  In my mind I had already made up that he wasn't going to know what to do and that I was going to leave without an answer one more time.  I was already making plans to find someone else to see.

Dr. sits down and asks all the questions about how the last injection went.  After telling him it did not work at all and I was not doing good in the pain area, he started thinking.  We went through the exam and everything and he finally looked at me and said "I think it may be time for surgery."  And there came the tears.

I am terrified of the idea of surgery.  I wanted to make sure that this really is what I need to do.  Dr. said that since the injections are not helping and there is some major inflammation, the only way to take care of it completely was surgery.  Ugh not looking forward to this one!

The official term that we have come up with for my problem is Left Shoulder Impingement.  He is going to go in and create more room for my muscle as well as just make sure everything is going ok there.  He says this surgery has a 95% success rate, so I guess the odds are in my favor!

Please keep me in your prayers next Friday June 1, as this will be my first surgery and I am quite nervous about it
