Dr Sam to you Sonny, and your very welcome. Hope you can go back to snoring and keep your wife awake at night.Only got up twice last night, once at 1:50am then again at 3:45am. Slept in the sling and the shoulder seems a little less painful this morning. Thanks Y Sam.
I first injured my shoulder about 3-4 years ago, when I felt a "pop" in the joint whilst pushing a cable through a ducting, didn't think anything of it, so carried on. It gradually got worse. I was taking Diclofenac at the time for knee pain after a few knee surgery's, but that didn't really help. I went to our GP and he gave me a Cortisone injection in the shoulder and after a week or so it worked wonders. Unfortunately the Cortisone wares off after a while. Had other Cortisone injections over the course of time, Physio too, but nothing was lasting. Sleeping was difficult, so in the end the GP referred me to the Hospital. Was all set to have the shoulder sorted, then Covid hit. It wasn't until January this year that I was able to have the operation.
As it stands at the moment, I'm no better off than before. That's why I asked the question. I'm just hoping that over time the shoulder will settle down and I'll be able to get a better nights sleep. The fact that one shoulder looks shorter to my arm than the other is a little concerning though.
Hopefully I'll know more after seeing the Surgeon later today, assuming I can understand him.
