The problems with my tendon stated Nov. of last year. I think I hurt my shoulder at work opening a 24-inch valve, ever since then I had pain from the top of my shoulder down past my elbow. I didnít start seeing my Dr. until Feb. because of my traveling to South America. The first thing the Dr. did was prescribing Nabumetone 75mg for inflammation and sent me for an MRI. The MRI only showed that the tendon was inflamed, nothing else. The Dr. kept me on the Nabumeton for month and I did ice packs almost every day, then he sent me to get a nerve test to see if my never was being pinched, and that should nothing, he also sent me for physical therapy. The physical therapy, medication and ice packs didnít do much for the pain. Next thing the Dr. did was give me a corrosion shot, within about 3 weeks I started feeling about 50% of the pain had gone away.
So with some of the pain gone I started lifting again, I would take Suma about an hour before lifting. Overhead lifting was the worst, the pain would not go away, and I did this until about 3 weeks ago. I finely went to see my Dr. to go to the next step surgery. The Dr. said he would go in to see if there was any damage that the MRI didnít show and clear up any presser that might be on the nerveÖ Guess what? The Dr. found that tendon had a tier at the top of my shoulder.
The surgery was yesterday and today Iím typing with one hand. My arm is in a sling and I go back to see my Dr. Monday for post op, heís going to be showing me the pictures of the tare.
