Just realized that I've forgotten to update about my shoulder.
I went to one session of physical therapy. The therapist totally contradicted my doctor and said that I had too much strength in my shoulder for the rotator cuff to be torn (well, of course it has strength! I've been using it for two years...yeesh!). Anyway, they put ultrasound on it for 10 minutes and then did this electro-ice therapy (basically iced my shoulder while jolting it with little electric shocks...that was...fun) for 20 minutes. It helped a little, but not much. Then I got a call from the physical therapist a couple of days later that my insurance doesn't cover PT. So, I had to cancel any future appointments because I can't afford to pay for it out of pocket.
I had my follow-up appointment with my doctor today and informed him that my insurance doesn't cover PT. He was rather irritated (with the insurance, not me lol) and decided to send me to an orthopedist instead. It'll cost the insurance more, but whatev. lol So, now I'm waiting on the orthopedist to call me to set up an appointment. *sigh*
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
