September, Week 3 of NFL season. 

It sucks....my Philly show was cancelled so I could be in Vegas this weekend. Unfortunately I have so many reservations and airfare in limbo, its a longshot at best.

sweet!  sounds like what I had ...and they did the manipulation as well.  

no doubt it was a lot better after a couple of months - but for me, I needed more PT time and weirdly the insurance company covered it.  

even though it took me longer, it hasn't returned - and I have about 90% full movement back with zero pain.  

best of luck man - really think you'll be so happy you did it.  

btw:  that was 9 years ago (had the same thing on my other shoulder 4 years ago - and surgery) - no pain still

2 weeks post surgery, and for a few days I thought "I may have really screwed up."  It is doing somewhat better now, way more range of motion and I think the pain I have is related to the incision points rather than the joint itself.  I will gladly take 90% range with no pain.  They did approve more PT for mine as well, probably 6 more weeks at 3X per for a total of 8 weeks.  I think he said I'm currently at 110 degrees of the 180, so decent progress.  In the end I'll be way happier that I had it done.

The anesthesiologist asked pre-surgery "Do you want the nerve block?" I was like "Whatever you recommend".  He said shoulder surgery is a top 5 painful surgery so he always recommends it and I was thinking "Why do you even ask?"  Some people decline it apparently.  My nerve blocked lasted 36 hours so the first session of PT was remarkable, they bent my arms like playdoh.  He said "Tomorrow will be very different" and he was right.

sweet - really want to hear how it comes along.  

note:  make sure to ask you PT to use his elbow when putting pressure at the joint when he has you on the table ...man ...it's the best - feels great.

roverkid most likely managed to get another concussion.   new primary care physician won't see her for it.   concussion specialist won't see her without a referral from her primary.   urgent care won't touch a concussion.   her only option is ER, which would be a full day commitment, but she's in finals for school and doesn't want to miss them.   

she has the worst luck.

I hate to roverkid is going thru this. 
Can you go to the primary care under the guise of headaches or nausea rather than your (probably correct) diagnosis?

and ER visits unless you’re life is really at risk are the worst

she won't touch a concussion.   

this would be her probable 4th, definite 3rd.  she got smacked in the head by one of those retractable nylon belt things that they use to create lines in lobbies.   migraine, nausea and fatigue.  we've been down this road.  it's a concussion.   

trying to get her into another concussion specialist that doesn't need a referral.

is the PCP afraid of being sued - is there some kind of unusual level of risk for PCPs in just seeing a patient with suspected concussion - sorry man, this is all messed up ...I still equate doctors with the hippocratic oath

or do a virtual visit and just say that you need the referral.  now

 

i f'ing hate insurance companies

This has been a circus.   concussion led to anorexia, which led to residential treatment, where a psychiatrist said she was depressed and should be on meds.   PCP refused to prescribe meds without six months of additional therapy, which roverkid refused to do because she'd just spent months in residential treatment and hates therapy.  then my insurance cancelled me over a billing error (I had overpaid by one payment, which screwed up their system).   finally got sorted out, found a new PCP who put her on antidepressants and lo and behold they were working.   now her concussion specialist won't see her without a new referral, the new PCP won't deal with concussions, and she doesn't want to screw up finishing her junior year since she has finals this week and if she burns a day in the ER it will be a problem.

i still don't understand why the dr won't see her.  "won't deal with concussions".  he/she is a ####### dr.  i would absolutely lose my ever loving mind on this "dr"  

and if i were a lawyer, i would be flexing that muscle, big time.

i'm flabbergasted

You'd be surprised, but threatening to sue a doctor who won't see a patient because she's afraid of practicing outside of her expertise isn't really an effective way to get an appointment.   They're all gunshy.   You present a kid with an eating disorder and a history of concussion and they all suddenly aren't taking new patients.

So sorry gb. I know ive mentioned, but i have had probably a half dozen or so. No bueno.

Can you ask the PCP to provide a referral to the specialist since she is refusing to see her.

I totally get that, but if she has a concussion, and obviously has a history of significant concussions, I’m not sure that finals are going to go well anyway. The whole thing sucks so bad.

And what a stupid way to get a concussion. That sucks too. My wife has had a bunch of concussions and most of hers have been really dumb. Makes it all the more disheartening.
