for either of us!! It only cost us $5,000. to find out (there goes the new pool) but, when we were looking at all the expenses surgery, recovery and PT would total out to….we feel pretty darn lucky.
The DR was pretty shocked when she read my MRI results, she actually said “I woulda bet the farm it was torn”. Acute tendonitis. of my right rotator and bicep and yes, I am right handed of course . Mr. Fix-t’s is his left so, at least we can still hold hands. We both received steroid shots in the shoulder and a weeks worth of meds to take with a follow up in a few weeks.
When we had the MRI’s they joked that we were the first husband and wife team they’d worked on. I said we’ve done everything else together for nearly 30 years & we didn’t want to break the pattern. Besides, Larry has needed his checked for a long time. This turned into one of those “I’ll go get checked if you do” situations. I had the dye injection first because, if I knew he was hurting in the process I would
be out of there quicker than you could blink… never have it done, so he had me go first. The other thought was he wouldn’t have to lie to me and say it was “OK” Truthfully, turned out It wasn’t bad at all! Lot of pressure from the dye sauce and laying in an uncomfortable position but other than that…fine.
So, I’m still running around like a one winged chicken. Dr, said don’t use it & to let the meds do their thing. In the mean time, My house looks like a bomb went off in it & I’m calling the dust a “protective covering”
My left hand/arm is becoming educated but it sure is a slow & frustrating process.
At least I can still knit!
Have a great weekend!
