I had my second doctor’s appointment today for the torn labrum in my shoulder and after 5 weeks of physical therapy, the doctor asked me if I was getting better (slightly), and if I could live with the pain I have now.. to which I replied absolutely not.
So I am currently scheduled for an MRI with Arthrography next Tuesday. I’m not gonna lie, I’m not really too excited about this procedure. I don’t consider myself claustrophobic, but I feel like being in a scary metal tube for 30 minutes could change that. The are going to inject a contrast medium into the joint ( I feel like that is going to hurt), apparently my doctor said that they were going to be able to get a lot of fluid in my shoulder because there is a lot of empty space? (say what?) I don’t have any idea what that means, but I’ll go with it.
Good news is that, if I do have to have surgery the recovery time is only 4 months. And I have a feeling that is full recovery, which means I will (hopefully) be able to run my 10k in October, Woot (this is me not getting my hopes up), and go snowboarding this winter.
I will have more updates on that when I know more, next week.
For the next few days I will recap our Vancouver vacation, so stay tuned 🙂
