    Well glad you are getting somewhere and good for you for sticking up for yourself.

    I find that simply asking why - essentially asking for evidence or cause is usually enough to get a doc to make a better effort.

    This guy sounds like a dink.

    Even if he found arthritis. I'm pretty sure the options would be PT and or cortisone shot. Also congrats on the no arthritis! further proof that you are immortal.

    Good for you snake. Glad you stood up for yourself. Crazy that we have to fight for relief. Seems a lot of these docs just simply want you to keep coming back and taking money.

    I brought in my BOWTIE to ask his thoughts an that. Told him it gives me some relief for about 30 min after I take it off. His reply was, "I never seen something like that and it's only temporary relief.

    Since the BOWTIE resets the shoulder, wouldn't you think that temporary relief would speed recovery by taking the continuous stress on the muscle and joints? Oh did he poo-poo my BOWTIE.

    Update:

    The good: went for a second opinion and this Dr. was good. Straight forward and I think he liked how I bashed the other Dr. This Dr. took the time to look at my X-ray and MRI, did some evaluations and told me there's no way I have a complete tear.

    The bad: He was honest and doesn't think that to continue to lead my lifestyle, therapy is going to get me where I want to be. That at best, it may take some pain away. His concern was the labrum tear. Doc said some of the issues may resolve by the body healing itself but not the labrum.

    Going forward I'm giving the PT guy 4 weeks 2x/wk at his place and doing the stretching and exercises he gave me to do 3x/day on my own. I made an apt with the second opinion guy for then and if I'm not where I should be, I'll go for the surgery.

    Eh, sorry to hear... been there. I tore my labrum in 10th grade... I opted not to do surgery and healed it on my own. I never fully recovered... my shoulder will easily dislocate if put in the right position ever since. It’s a matter of just avoiding moves/angles that stress it. All the best, hope the pt helps!

    Hopefully you won't need to have surgery.

Started a round of Naproxen this week and dropped a shoulder exercise that seems to bother it. Been keeping the reps high and not testing any heavy weights.

    Anyone deal with this before and what did you do?

    Check into some Neuromuscular Therapy Treatment. That usually corrects the problem.
