I'm Camille, and I’m a moderator for this topic. I sent your requested professional a message to follow up with you here, when they are back online. Unfortunately I do not know when this may be, as the professionals come on line as they are available. You don't have to stand by, you will get an email telling you when you have received a response. If I can help further, please let me know. Thank you for your continued patience.
Hi there!! That is actually a good question. But let me ask you this first....tell me again, did your Dr ever do a MRI on that shoulder?
Hi, Nurse Milli-:
I won't be having the MRI until probably after my appointment w/my hip surgeon , which is scheduled for Oct. 24th....At that time, he is going to check how well the hip replacement is progressing, and "look" at my shoulder--He will decide on whether or not i require both an additional set of shoulder X-Rays and or the MRI at that time....
(I suppose he will be taking an X-Ray of my "new" hip at that time as well!).
I AM continuing w/all of the meds you mentioned....I a,m just concerned that they may mask my progress or LACK of (shoulder)progress....
Can you tell me what the symptoms for stenosis are?
Do you think mt thigh pain when i walk(it also feels as if my leg is HEAVY!!)could be caused by that or my disc prob (or both)?
Thanx, Nurse Milli!!
Yes--The disc prb. is lL4-L5, and the stenosis is the lumbar spine....i am just wondering if the cause of my leg pai when i walk COULD be caused by one or both of these, and if so, if there is anything i can do beyond periodic epidural shots and the Diclofenac (oral)--what can i do at home, if anything?
Thank you SO much!!
