I had a review at fracture clinic today....the consultant was lovely but kind of nailed it down with the phrase " of course your arthritis just makes it all more complicated!". :oops:
So a month on I have reasonable mobility but need physio, had the first short session in the fracture clinic immediately and next is booked for next week. Again I'm really impressed with the follow up of our local hospital. Review back in clinic in about 3 months, and if I'm still struggling at that point the consultant said he'll refer me to a shoulder specialist in the Orthopaedic Department.......so I'll be diligent with the exercises and hope it's settled before then. Strangely since shedding my sling I've got a problem with my upper arm that feels as if something is about to give way or tear when my arm is extended...it feels really odd and unsettling.
Having attempted to stick to the physio advice of doing 5 minutes of the set exercises every hour I now have a decidedly sore shoulder and aching arm, hoping that practise makes it better. :?
