Injury Update.

Back in March I injured my shoulder. After several trips to the doctor it was finally diagnosed. The MRI showed that I have a tear of the Labrum in my right shoulder. It is torn from the 6 o'clock to the 2 o'clock position, so almost 3/4 of it is torn. I also have a compression injury of my Glanohumeral Ligament. It is compresse to the point that it could be seen through on the MRI. I am going through physical therapy several times a week and see the Orthopedic doctor again on July 11th. I was told that this injury will not heal itself and that the only way for it to be fixed is with surgery. It is now shot with steroid so the pain is a 1 on a scale from 1-10. Before the steroid the pain was a 7. Updates to follow.
