Hi all......Still not too many answers. PCP gave me some Mobic and Lidocaine patches. Helped a little last night. Need to have a Venous Doppler done of my arm today to outrule clots. Just what I needed to hear. He also thinks the swelling above my collar bone is a fatty tumor BUT since it didn't occur until almost a month after surgery and after starting PT has his doubts. Would like a CT scan of the whole are done but wants me to see the surgeon first to get his opinion. Will do that on Tuesday. If the surgeon blows it off or wants no tests, PCP will order them. He said these fatty tumors can come up for no reason and there's noting that's done about them. Also said my first rib COULD be out of place BUT the area of the swelling is not caused by the rib. So I am still somewhat in the dark. Will be glad when they outrule clots today. Haveing it done at 11:00. Will check in when I'm done unless of course I have one and then they will admit me immediately. UGH! Always something.
