Hi. I guess you've probably noticed I haven't done an entry for a week.
I've been in a whole lot of pain. It is my rotator cuff injury. I have been going to Occupational Therapy for three weeks now. It seems that the tear in the muscle may be healing, but my shoulder has frozen up somehow. I went back to my Orthopedic doctor the other day. He was very concerned with my progress. My arm can barely move, except for a few inches up.
So Dr. Bosha wants me to come back in less than two weeks. At that point he is going to recommend me to an Orthopedic Surgeon. If I have not made substantial progress, I am going to have to have surgery. I mean, like, go to the hospital and have my shoulder stretched out while asleep. He said they will move it all around, and break up whatever needs to be broken up, such as scar tissue which is causing me not to be able to move much. Ugghh, sounds painful! I think I will hurt when I wake up. The therapists at Physical Therapy said it will hurt really bad, and they encouraged me to try to work real hard in the last two weeks before I see the surgeon, so that if there's any possible way that I won't have to have the surgery, I could skip it.
Gee, I don't want a surgery.
Okay, one more thing. Tuesday morning (as in April 15), I'm having a CT scan, to get my lung checked out. Remember I mentioned I am getting the scan to see if I have lung cancer? Dr. Raquet said that they could rule in cancer, but they could not rule it out at this time. So if it doesn't look like the nodule has grown sufficiently enough to be cancer at this point, he will not do anything invasive. He will just leave it alone, and do another CT scan in a few months (two or three?) and then again another few months after that (until/unless he determines it won't be necessary anymore).
He also promised me that if he did find cancer (which would be lung cancer) he would call me right away. I am assuming he means in a couple of days.
So that is what I am dealing with in the next few weeks.
Oh, and I am finishing up my taxes, LOL. After the CT scan I am going to stand in line at my post office to get that precious postmark on the letter to go to the IRS. But we will be getting money back! I dread standing in that line, though, LOL.
Okay, please pray for me. Ugh, like, there's too many health things going on at once.
Love you all, Krissy
