sammy hon, one huge thing you have to keep in mind here along with other possibilities that may show themselves upon that MRI(god i HOPE so) is the simple fact that you were never ever even able to really rehab that shoulder from the git go,remember? i know you do unfortunetly. believe me sammy,i am even at this stage STILL rehabbing mine and still making tiny increments of progress,even this far out. i really really think that part of your underlying issues right now(the tightness gripping feeling) is related solely to muscle crap,ya know? i can still remeber how my shoulder ands that whole area even up thru the base of my skull kept feeling soo overtightened for so long while actually going thru the hands on part of PT that you were just not able to do becasue of the other problems. it DOES make a huge difference hon,really huge. i know it did with me so i am thinking you are probably the same there?

the simple fact that your muscle issues have just kept progressing and getting worse i really do think that shoulder not returning to full capascity or even beginning to just pull out all the wads of tightness you have and the ungodly trigger points i just KNOW you would have to have,well that could be a huge reason for the impact it is having now ya know? i can just imagine your upper back and the mid areas turning into this tight little ball of pain as all those unstrechable muscles continue to keep getting tighter and tighter. not having the hands on part of the PT i just really do think,when i see how my progression has been and what i used to have(remember when we both felt the very same things?)is having a much greater impact on your neck,upper back and your arms than you may actually think hon. i really do. if i miss even one wek with my PT guy,.things get really over tight and pretty ugly in here,mostly in the upper. i simply and you too,NEED to have stretches done on a regular basis but your pain issues create this viscous cycle where you just keep looping around and around this same crap,you know what i mean? you simply cannot rehab properly becasue it fires off too much crap anytime you go over a certain limit. you are just stuck in this damn cycle that WONT allow to fully rehab an area that i can tell you hon,without my PT being part of this whole surgery rehab thing,i would NOT even be able to lift my arms above my head either. that much i do know.

hopefully getting thse results will at least give you a direction to go in,but at the same time,i really do think just getting SOME level of possibly even myofascial release at the this point would help you SO much sammy,really. just as long as they take things VERY slowly with you,the myo is such a low impact lay your hands on type of therepy,i really do think it would help some with at least getting some of that horrid muscle tightness to at least give some and allow you movement again ya know? the combo of PT and that myo release is what enabled me to get back my ROMS,that much i KNOW. he has had to go very lightly and slowly with me just becasue of the very high overall body tone i have,and it still works for me hon. i just think this part of your rehab needs to be looked into at least to a point. this really sounds like soooo much wound up muslce tissue that just has not actually been able to strech out for HOW LONG NOW? this just really sounds to me sammy like alot of muscle crap,at least that overtightened part and what that in and of itself just casues for us. that rotator surgery,despite having six others, was by far the worst of the worst as far as what it took away and what had to be rehabbed for me. these were all ortho surgeries pretty much too. my spinal cord surgery was whole different ballgame.

please le me know ASAP what that MRI showed when hubby gets it,K? hang in there sweetie,marcia
