I have not been blogging or doing any typing that requires my left arm and I've missed talking to you. Time for me to get back to business after a week of doctor's appointments, sleepless nights, tests and strong medicine.
But I was reassured by the bigwig orthopedic shoulder surgeon at the Texas Medical Center that some people's shoulders react to even minor injuries in excessive ways. That's what happened to me. I have a small rotator cuff tear but my body decided to make all kinds of scar tissue--way too much. I have a frozen shoulder, or adhesive capsulitis if you want the fancy term. This overreaction by my body in turn led to bicep and tricep tendinitis. Pain, in other words.
the shoulder drill sergeant. He doesn't do kind and gentle. I have had to bite my tongue a lot in the last two weeks. I call that taking a different kind of medicine.
What about you? Have you had a weird reaction to medicine or an illness or an injury? Or am I just a freak of nature?
