For years and years, my aunt has suffered shoulder pain. She's been to doctor after doctor, who sometimes bothered to do an x-ray before giving her a prescription for pain pills and sending her to physical therapy. A good number, seeing nothing on the x-ray, seemed to be giving her the pills and a referral just to get rid of a patient who really had nothing wrong.


Aunty went to a sports doctor a week ago. He said it sounded like a bone spur or a rotator cuff injury, and an x-ray wouldn't show enough of the bones to rule out a bone spur and can't show muscle injury. He sent her straight to a lab

That is fantastic that she got a doctor that listens !!! I hope her surgery helps her ease this pain, many good luck vibes are coming her way.

Jaseann, I am so happy that they finally are going to help your Aunt!! How terrible she has had to live with this for so many years because Drs take the easy way out! But there is hope! Persistence (sp?) is key. We can never forget that. I pray everything will go smoothly and she will be healed quickly.

Hugs,
