MRI part 2
The results of the MRI are in. It's not bursitis. I have a tear in the socket cartilage which runs from the 11 o'clock position to 1 o'clock - a SLAP tear - plus a little "subacromal subdeltoid bursal inflammation." I will have to spend a day at Royal North Shore for a short operation to fix this on a date to be determined.

Ouchie. Good luck with that - it seems to be all the rage around my friends.

But hang on - how will you get there if you can't raise your arm high enough to hitchhike?

I don't get any pain at all if I keep my arm within a 90deg arc of my body - so straight out in front to straight out to the side, and all angles down. Outside that hurts. I'm fine driving the car, but I can't use my right arm to reach the seat belt. I have to use my left arm.

And putting on a t-shirt is a bit of a struggle. Washing the left side of my body in the shower is painful because I have to reach across. Scratching my back is impossible. Weirdness.

I wish you good luck,. my friend,. and a swift recovery.
