Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.
Where is the tear, which tendon?
In the left shoulder,I have to wait 10 days before I see the doctor, I was told today at the ultra scan because I asked the radiologist.
Have you had physical therapy and for how long?
Yes on and off for 18 months
You will first want your Drs impression of how severe the tear is
so what can I expect
If you have already had PT, your Dr may suggest surgery, its the only other option.
You need to be careful of too many steroid injections, which can weaken the tendon
How will they mend the tear with surgery
No idea since I have no idea where the tear is or the extent of your injury. But here is a great link from Mayo clinic that explains the different treatments in an easy to understand manner.
Thank You for your help,much appreciated.
