Rehab 02/20/14

You know my rehab days are fantastic. After years of having all of this pain in my shoulder and shoulder blade I am finally in a rehabilitation program. It is nothing special or intense. I show up for a 30 minute session every Wednesday and Friday. I get 8 minutes of ultra sound around the muscles in my left shoulder, neck, and shoulder blade. Then the woman (pam) structurally works on different muscles trying to loosen them up. If people have been following my blog/bitching one of the tumors is in the lymph node underneath my left collar bone and it creates lots of havoc on the surrounding muscles. The pain starts where the tumor is and slowly moves down to my rotator cuff and up my neck towards my ear. I also have had a spot right smack dab in the middle of my left shoulder blade that was nicked during a surgery that feels like I’m being stabbed. I’ve had it since 2002. I have lots of pain where my surgical scars are and Pam worked on them briefly this past Wednesday. I am feeling it today. The idea is to loosen up the muscles and release the tension and lactic acids that are built up. The problem with that though is my body has had so much trauma that its very difficult to rework and correct the problems. Granted my shoulder does feel much looser and a when the pain flares up it still kills but hasn’t expanded as far across the shoulder as it previously did. So good things are happening there. I’m really looking forward to more work on the spleenectomy cut area and the bottom of the chest resection area. I so want the numbness and pain to disappear. Any relief is welcomed. So far, so good.

I came. I saw. I probably created massive amounts of havoc.
