Hi everyone and @Jeannie Di Bon Jeannie asked me to let her know how I got on in the Zoom meeting last week when we chatted about my shoulder. I said I was about to have an MRI on it because of pain and weakness in my left arm. The results are I have an acute rupture of my rotator cuff, 4cm x 2.5 cm, so a biggy Grade 3 I believe. On my shoulder MRI on August 28th there was no mention of anything so it has gone from nothing to a large rupture in a space of about 3 months. I have no idea how this could have happened as I do not do any lifting, pushing, pulling, I don't go shopping, do housework, walk the dogs etc. I normally swim front crawl but haven’t been in the pool swimming for quite a few months. Treatment hasn’t been decided yet as I’ve put my shoulder consultant in touch with an HSD/EDS orthopaedic specialist (given to me by the EDS helpline), to discuss my case. Jeannie, do you have any thoughts on this? And what exercises would you recommend as I need to keep my shoulder mobile. I cannot lift my arm much as there is little power and it’s very painful if I do. Has anyone got thoughts on how this could have happened or had similar happen? TIA xx
