Well in a bit I am leaving to see my doctor for my shoulder, its not getting any better, I think its from working out but again I'm not sure, we will see. I do know I won't have surgery for it. I can't deal with that right now. Well take care and try and keep cool, we are going to be in the 90's again today. Sam

Hey Sam,

Yeah! I am so glad you are finally doing this. You've been having this problem for months! Can't wait to hear what he/she says.

Well the doctor gave me celebrex to take and is sending me to PT and also had taken xrays. He will call me later to let me know what the xrays says. He think its arthritis and my rotor cuff, Yippy what fun. Sam

Hi Sam,

Thanks for taking the time to let us know. I sure hope PT can help and that you don't have to undergo any surgery for the cuff.

Hi Sam,
That sounds pretty painful....I hope the Celebrex works for no until the exrays come back with more answers about your shoulder. Take care in the meantime.

Sam,
Years ago I had a torn rotator cuff. I know just how painful that is!! I sure hope therapy helps you. I did not have therapy, just the surgey and, knock on wood, no trouble with that shoulder since then. I "just" suffer with the oppsite shoulder now. It's 'frozen' and so far three months of therapy have not helped.
Good luck to you, and just take it easy.
