So last night during the Red Sox game I got disgusted and stomped off to take a shower. I guess I wasn't paying attention but when I went to get out (sunken shower) I slipped and landed on my left shoulder with my left arm caught behind me.

This dislocated my shoulder out of the socket. I screamed bloody murder and fWS came running in. So there I am wet, naked and dislocated. FWS also being an MD grabbed my arm and relocated my humerus. I then tried to get up and put weight on the arm and it dislocated again. FWS got me up and was about to perform another maneuver when it popped back in on its own.

Oh My God that hurt. I missed work today but went up there to be x-rayed and examined by our sports medicine doc (who also works with our division I football players). I have a torn labrum (like the meniscus of the knee). I'm slinged, iced and on drugged. I'll be starting PT next week.

The problem with this injury is that people can start dislocating with very little stress on the joint (like Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon). If that happens its major surgery, immobile shoulder for months. I do NOT want that.

So please wish me good mojo and healing. And give me strength to not kill these dogs who are acting out knowing I can't do anything about it. Little bastards.

Oh, and the worst part is I missed the 8th and 9th inning heroics of Big Papi and Salty. Damn It!!!

Ouch! Sorry about your shoulder, pj. My sister has a similar problem with her ankle. She can be just walking around and it'll dislocate.

Now, listen to your therapist, hear? I know you're a doctor but it's said doctors are the *worst* patients. Don't be cliche, alright? In this case *you* are the patient. Be the kind *you* would want.

Sending healing mojo. Hope you feel better soon.

Shoulder injuries suck! Follow orders and do your PT faithfully. I broke my shoulder ten years ago and never got back full range of motion.

Heal fast. Enjoy the drugs. ;-)

Definite healing mojo!! I've had two torn miniscus in my knees, and OMG, the pain is unbearable. I can't imagine how painful the shoulder is.

So, stay slinged, iced, and drugged and get all better!

I'd hug you but I'm afraid it would hurt. You're in my thoughts for a quick, full recovery.

Now you know how some of the NFL'ers feel this week.

As they say, if you injure yourself, best it's close to another doc!

Take care of yourself and heal fast!

Thanks for the healing mojo!

Worked for one hour today and had to go home. FWS forbid me to go back today. Soooo there is nothing on TV. I'm reduced to watching a World Cup qualifier between England and Poland. Soccer is SO boring.

Have my PT appt next Wednesday. Yea ice, Aleve. Parafon Forte, lortab, and voltaren cream!!!

Ouch! I'm so sorry that happened.

The good news is that they've come light years in treating shoulder injuries in the past decade and a half or so.

I hope you won't need that sort of intervention---that PT and conservative tx will work. But should it come to surgery, it will at least be more effective than ever before :)
