Hi Tin, Golly, so happy to hear from you and to know finally who Tin is. I found out yesterday that my Ortho surgeon has been on vacation along with a medical conference so my surgery won't be until I get to see him again. So frustrating not to know after all this time!! You were blessed to have the ability for high pain tolerance, but however, not so true for me. I wish I had that ability. UGH!
I won't even attempt to return yet until I have an answer for this shoulder. In the meantime, I'm to have lumbar injections, and the doctors office will call me today to schedule. My back is an issue, my shoulder is an issue, and I have a knee that needs replacing, but that will have to wait. I'm a mess!
Thanks so much for stopping by. So many wonderful friends have sent heartfelt messages like yours and I appreciate that so much. Will keep in touch!

Wow, you do have a lot to contend with. I'll be praying even harder for you. I truly hope your orthopedist can get to you soon. I hope the lumbar injections will at least take that pain away ... to have bad pain in three areas at once must be really hard to deal with. My thoughts are with you, my friend. <3
Thank you so much! One step at a time they say.
I'm so sorry you're in so much pain! I pray for a successful surgery and recovery from this..
Take good care of yourself and look forward to seeing you when you're able.
WoW I have not checked in for a while. I am so sorry to find out about all of what you are going through. The pain and waiting must be so frustrating ...From your post your attitude about everything is great. Please keep us all posted.( I will check in) So all I can do from here is wish you the best send some mental hugs, and imaginary flowers, chocolate, and coffee.
Looking forward to seeing you back at the castle
Keeping you in my prayers.
Hello my friends,
Can't thank everyone enough for the love, kind thoughts and prayers you've sent my way. My shoulder issue is one of two issues I'm facing, and the first is a lumbar injection this Friday which hopefully will give long awaited relief that has plagued my back for years. After that, my Orthopedic Dr said yesterday that I'd need an MRI for my shoullder first then surgery. Can't be soon enough.
Many thanks again, and I'll let you know where I go from here. Miss my MC friends and the game but hope to return before too many more weeks/months.
Wishing you all the best, and a quick, and as painless recovery as possible. Ready for your next adventure in life and MC
Finally got the MRI results which showed I had three options: injections with Physical Therapy to strengthen my arm to reach heights higher than I'm able to now, OR Arthroscopic Surgery with 3 months down time + PT, OR total rotator cuff replacement with up to 12 months recovery + endless rounds of PT. For now, I chose injections with PT to follow.
For now, this gets me back into MC as I've really missed all my friends who have patiently waited for me, and I really have missed the game. Can't thank everyone enough whose kind thoughts, love and prayers helped me move forward in search of an answer to my shoulder issue. Truly I'd had enough!
