When things get really rough

crackercracker Member Posts: 324 Pioneering
I aw an orthopedist today who did the MRI. Not good news: no ligaments or tendons left to hold left shoulder in place, right one is on its way there. They are also fractured.

I am down to 38 kilos with all the pain and stress and pain.

I go next week to another facility where they work as a team to see if anything can be done. ast stab for me.

I am, facing losing all function in my arms and hands. I am having great difficulty in processing this. Can anyone give me a hand in handling this emotionally? I am frightened, sad and feeling hopeless.

    Ouch, I got a reading on the MRI today. Both shoulder have fractures, too.
    I need more pain relief. 

    There are some of you here suffering much more than I am. Please, all, take care  and take heart.
