Tomorrow evening I have an MRI on my left shoulder. The pain the past few weeks has been excruciating; I’m hoping whatever they find it is something we can fix.
In 2003 I was T-Boned in a car accident. Totally destroyed my left shoulder – had surgery to put it back together and repair the tendons. In a minor incident shortly after the surgery I popped one of the tendons so the end of one bone protrudes slightly. Never been an issue – but lately the pain in that should has been growing.
They think there might be the infamous ‘rotator cuff’ issue going on as well. Whatever it is, I’m just ready for it to end.
Started on hydrocodone, have moved to oxycodone. Still lower dose, but I’d rather not go up as the higher dose makes it very hard to concentrate on my job.
So Wednesday, February 8, 2017, at 9:00pm I will be slid into the cave for pictures. I hate that machine. I’m highly claustrophobic … fortunately the doctor has already prescribed tranquilizers for that evening. I’ve had MRIs before – sometimes the pills help the anxiety, sometimes they don’t. Fortunately, with the addition of the pain meds, I expect to be fairly mellow for the duration of the test.
Got a friend driving me there and home again.
Any spare positive thoughts would be greatly appreciated…
