So, today at 2:30pm, I finally go in to have my shoulder fixed. After just over two years of dealing with the pain and severely limited range of motion, I decided enough was enough...and since I have medical insurance through my work, now was the time.
They are going in arthroscopically and removing a bone spur under my acromion that is pinching and fraying my rotator cuff, shaving down the bones of my AC joint because they are pressing together due to severe edema related to a previous AC joint sprain, and they are possibly going to have to reattach my bicep (he'll have to see when he gets in there if it actually needs to be done).
I will be in a sling (nasty contraption lol) for a minimum three weeks and off work for two weeks. Which means no riding for at least two weeks, possibly more depending on what the doctor says.
But, after I'm all healed up, I'll be able to saddle my horse without help! YAY! Lol
