Hello again, it is jim from NJ (now 24) and it has been some time since i wrote.My workmans comp doctors had reached the conclusion (seen at least half a dozen orthapedics, one pain management doc, the last 3 of them were shoulder specialists and thats what they agreed) that I have severe Bursitis in my left shoulder from trauma.

I still work in a grocery store ( just search my name JFLY on here for the long summery of my story)so that really doesnt work that well for me. I had attended therapy on and off for several scripts, they gave up on anti inflammitorys and several trigger point injections ( i went for them on lunch breaks, didnt do anything at all for me neither besides make it more sore). The initial injury was in October 2007, and i received MRI's in MAY of this year.

I will be receiving a ?Scapulothoric Bursectomy? in 11 days..
From what I read it seems like Subacromic Decrompression.

I've never even been in any sort of surgery so i'm anxious and nervous.

Either way, I'm glad to hear of a course of action after 20 months with no real relief. I was not even able to get injections without representation.

Anybody familier with what this sounds like? Surgery or story wise?
I pray it does help, and i hope to hear some good news from others as well.


have you googled the surgery you are going to have, to see what will be done, and what to expect afterwards?
I am not familiar with this surgery...but am a fellow worker with shoulder injury.
I can tell you that a shoulder is very complicated joint...and they are notorious to be slow healers.

Don't worry during your surgery....you won't feel a thing as they'll keep you full of the most wonderful sleep drug you could ever imagineSmile No kidding , it's great!

You may be in pain when you awake...but they'll soon take care of that too. Try to keep a positive outlook, and don't get all hyped about the surgery....remember little kids and babies have big surgeries everyday...and they tolerate it, pull through fine. Hopefully your surgery will be just as successful.
Good Luck. LillySmile
Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!

A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
