Back from doctor

with one comment

Right shoulder pain is due to a torn or inflamed ligament, most likely. First step will be some physical therapy—or, this being the US, the first step will be to call the health insurance company and make sure the physical therapist is in network, that the therapy will be covered as medically necessary, and what deductible might be involved. If therapist is not in network, I will need to get a list of local therapists who are in network and get back to the doctor to see which of those might work. My doctor did give me a box of samples of a natural anti-inflammatory as well.

UPDATE: Someone asked about the medicine: It’s Limbrel (flavocoxid 500 mg), which he said to take right after breakfast and right after dinner—i.e., on a full stomach. One capsule morning, one capsule evening. The sample he gave me is a little box of 20 capsules, individually wrapped.

  1. Mike, wouldn’t it be cheaper to pick up the phone and call Roger Clemens’ former trainer? 🙂

    Hope your treatment eventually works. Only stupidity should be painful, not shoulders.
