Sitting Up Can't Sleep Shoulder Pain

I have had a round of sterioid shots in my shoulders and it settled down my right shoulder. I also had a pack of oral steroids as well, but my left sholder is extremely painful at night which is when you feel a rotator cuff tear the most. My orthopod wants me to get a MRI and I will be after tonight. It is looking like I may have torn my rotator cuff. I picked the right time of year for it at least I got to ride all year and I will only be off the bike for a short time if I need surgery.

I think the big ride prompted my shoulders to be inflamed but the damage was done allitle while back when I hoisted or muscled the Rocket up right. I did not let it fall over when I was stopped and after getting it up right my left shoulder wass sore for weeks. I may have torn a segment of my Rotatator cuff back then.

If I did I will be getting surgery which involves getting at least one stay screwed into the bone. Stays have a heavy ethibond type suture attached to them. Essentially acting as an anchor or a man made tendon of sorts for muscle. I have attached some photos of stays or anchors.

i know most of you will not be interested in this thread...but to be honest it is taking my mind of the discomfort and the exhaustion I am feeling right now. So I thought I would write about it. If I have to get the surgery I will be back riding in a short time. I have already started planning several IBA rides for next year.

Sorry about the shoulder. That second device reminded me of this:





Does your surgeon shop at Lowes?

I'm always interested in modern medicine, ESP the procedures for repairing wear and tear on our bodies.
Keep us posted....can you get GoPro footage?

I have 4 of those in the re-build of my left shoulder. Cool little rascals. Do the physical therapy though or it wont matter what you get done.

I tore the cuff in my right shoulder. It felt awfully beastly there for a long time, but I didn't have surgery. I'm sure surgery has improved since then though (this was 93 or so).

I was up a lot during the night as well with aching joints and aching pancreas after doing t he hay.

I think your 'Wing is too heavy, Lee. You should trade it for something smaller like Ride's new scooter.

You might have to learn to live without the espresso maker, though.

Well mate, you've had the shots, you've tried the pills, there's only the suppositories to go...

I hope you can manage the pain till you get it fixed. I have a bum shoulder, but only in range of motion, so for now I'm good to go.
