Surrender to Orthopedic

I don't have chance posting my entry yesterday.
Not feeling well.
I went to see GP yesterday morning for my neck and shoulder pain.
She then referred me to Orthopedic Specialist whom I visited this morning.

Took time off. and waited since 8.45am at the hospital near my house.
Finally got to see that Doctor at 10am and he ask me do some exercise and when he saw me doing it while he is holding my arm. He said no need to explain is very obvious! hahahah... safe on the explanation part.
He then asked me to go for X Ray and come back right after.

X ray result turn out my tendon is slanting on the odd way that is the reason it affected my neck as well. and the klak klik klak klik sound is due the movement is touching the slanting tendon.
Even my shoulder joint is not like normal people. Other will shows black color but mind is in white which is very not common and mean exhausted.
This is my left hand condition and I am left handed.
Doctor said he don't suggest for surgery for now.
He give me some type of steroid injection to my shoulder and ask me to take one medicine every night then observe for 6 weeks. He said this is his first time giving to woman without even any painful sound. He could hear the sound of the needle touching my bones and he know it is very painful.
Huh! don't he know that I endure the pain as much as I can just to look cool!!!!
Who said it's not painful????
The feeling is like ... I can tear that bed apart... That is how I feel at that time but I manage to remain expressionless.

If I am responding well , I will not feel hurt anymore but if reverse case then I need to go MRI and surgery. This is worst case. Which I hope not to this extend and inconvenient for my precious left hand.

Next follow up will be after 6 weeks which will be on 6 Sep 2011.
For now can't put to much pressure to my left hand and also can't even lift up my hand.
This is consider very minor to compare to others. I will endure the pain for recovery sake.

I also asked the Doctor on my severe bunion case.
He said surgery!
But he said many will not opt to this due to inconvenient.
Take 2 months to not move  the foot and 6 months to recover.
How sure the bunion wont grow back he said normally the chances is less for it to grow for my type of bunion.
I need to consider further and plan for something.

Not easy when you body is getting aging and show the sign on defect.
I am still lucky as my case is not so serious to compare with the handicapped.
I am bless. Thank you God!
