Ohh, exciting news! I forgot to mention it with all that has been going on! I made it past the first phase of convincing my orthopedic specialist not to give me surgery. I have made tremendous progress! My shoulder is still frozen quite a bit, but, I am tearing through the scar tissue in hopes to make my shoulder to work once again.
I can lift my right arm above my head holding it out to the side. If I try to raise my left arm (the one with the frozen shoulder and scar tissue), I can't even raise it half way up. But I used to only be able to lift the left arm about two inches, so I am making progress! The Occupational Therapists say not to be discouraged. However, they told me it would probably take four more months (a total of six months) to return to normal. Ugghhhh.
I don't see at this point how it is possible to bust through the scar tissue and adhesions completely, but I am just going to have to trust that I can do this and not have to have the medical procedure at the hospital that I don't want. That's what the Occupational Therapists say I can do, so I am certainly going to try.
