Food in Italy! And I Saw an Orthopaedic!

I’ll start with the visit to the orthopaedic.  I loved the doctor that Tanisha got me an appointment with!  He was very honest and to the point and explained everything very clearly.

Basically, all the tears in my rotator cuff are small and will heal on their own.  The fracture is non-displaced, so it will heal on it’s own.  He didn’t recommend physical therapy or massage.  All I need to do is let the injuries heal for 4 more weeks trying to pick up nothing heavier than a pencil with my left hand.  He thinks that after 4 more weeks I should have complete range of motion.

He did say he was very surprised at the amount of damage my fall seemed to cause.  There was still a decent amount of fluid build-up at the head of my shoulder when the MRI was taken.  He thinks that my rotator cuff tried to pull away during the fall but because I am young and my bones and muscles are strong, it wasn’t successful only leaving micro-tears.  He said it is also possible that my shoulder dislocated or almost dislocated with the force of the blow, but in the end was pulled back into place.

He said there is the possibility that I have cartilage damage, but the MRI will only show that if they dye the area for the scan.  So, my instructions were to give the shoulder rest, but if it is still bothering me 6 weeks from now, come back to see him.

I am allowed to run as many miles as my heart desires.  Just don’t fall.

I am perfectly okay with these instructions!  All is well!  I just need to be careful and let my body heal.  Done.

Now on to food pictures from Italy because we ate until we could not eat any more.
