I had my doctor appointment yesterday to find out what the results of the x-ray and shoulder ultrasounds showed.

The appointment was for 2:15 pm, but I didn’t get in to see the doctor until close to 2:50 pm so it was a relatively long wait in the office. Once inside, the nurse weighed me. I was pleased to see that I hadn’t gained any weight, but I hadn’t lost any weight either.

Suffice to say, the test results were all negative. As far as he could tell, there’s nothing wrong with my shoulder, but he can see the pain’s real and that I have little movement in it, and there’s a good amount of swelling around it. Since it could be something to do with vertebral discs, he’s going to set up an MRI of my upper spine and the area, and see what that shows. In the meantime, he suggested (very strongly) that I go have some physiotherapy on the shoulder to try and get some of the mobility back and strength built up there.

Should be fun. NOT.

In the meantime, I’m in a lot of pain there. And it’s affecting the use of my arm quite badly at the moment.

An MRI Kind of Friday March 3, 2017

Hadn’t talked about it on the blog, but I was scheduled to have an MRI this morning at 9:00 am.

Well, the MRI is done, and I’m home. I had a couple of other tests that included some dye and a bit of a sedative, which has made me a little sick to the stomach (on top of still recovering from the antibiotic), so I got home about 11:10, and have been lying down and just taking it easy for a bit.

Feeling somewhat better now, so checking out some e-mail and taking care of a couple of other things.

I’m supposed to game with the Friday night group, so hopefully I’ll feel better in a few hours.

Up first for now, a cup of (peppermint) tea. 🙂
