Operation Gold Dust is in danger of being cancelled out for this year. After buying everything needed to head out to Colorado and panning for gold, my shoulder started hurting. X-rays were shot and arthritis and a spur was discovered, but that is no biggy. Then, I was sent for physical therapy. During PT, the therapist moved that arm all around and says he thinks I have a rotator cuff injury. He does not think it is torn all the way through, but we will see. If physical therapy does not help, surgery. Surgery would put me in physical therapy during the time OGD is supposed to be happening.
When my other shoulder hurt like this, I ended up having two surgeries and physical therapy for 18 months and I never got full motion back.
