Hi my name is Steve and I have had osteoarthritis in my right knee now for the last 6 years. Not long ago I got diagnosed with ACJ Osteoarthritis and osteophyte in my left shoulder after suffering from severe frozen shoulder in my left shoulder and had an operation done on it back in 2019.
It flared up massively one night in April 2021 and after calling 999 the parademic gave me lots and lots of and lots of Entenox and told to contact my doctors in the morning. The parademic thought it was caused a week earlier when I had to go into hospital for a colonoscopy examination done under a general anaesthetic. Spoke to my doctor and she said that I should go straight to A&E which I did and that is when I found out.
Been having physiotherapy and not really worked and now been referred to the CAT team and now just waiting to hear back from them for an appointment. That was nearly 2 weeks ago and heard nothing. If I don't hear from them by the end of the week I am going to phone them up.
Worse thing for me is I am left handed so doing anything like shopping is extremely difficult.
