Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I just sent pictures.
35
First time a year and a half ago I tripped and slammed into it. Arm went limp and wouldn't let me lift anything without excruciating pain. Pain persisted off and on each day. Three weeks ago, I was shoving boxes on a conveyer belt and the pain flared up really bad. Muscles have felt fatigued sense. Putting on a seat belt wears my arm out and causes an intense dull pain. I've been getting less that 3 hours sleep a night because I'm a side sleeper and I'll toss on to it. Bicep has started to hurt recently and feels like a rubber band stretched too tight. My grip is weak and I keep dropping stuff.

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
they gave me a cd with a program on it that will only open in Internet Explorer 6 which I do not have and cannot install on my computer, so I just pulled what images I could find from it. I have a lot more images, but I do not know which ones you would need. And all of them are to big to upload at once.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

yes, there can be 100 or more images for a full shoulder MRI scan

it takes a long time to look at a full MRI image

you should ask for a copy of the shoulder MRI report from the radiology department which performed the study.

I would be happy to review the report with you

or you can try to upload the whole disk up to a large file sharing site like www.dropbox.com

and then post the http link here.

I sent you a link for all the pictures I could pull off the cd.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Did you have a chance to look at the mri pictures?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Did you ever have a chance to look at the MRIs? The workmen comp doctors are trying to throw out my case and make me pay for all the exams and medical as they are saying that it is severe arthritis and tendinitis. I have never had any pain in that shoulder before the incident, so I'm not sure how that's the case.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
