Thanks Christina,

I just got an MRI. The surgeon says my rotator cuff is healthy, but I have arthritis and shoulder surgery is a 50/50 shot. It may buy me some relief but maybe not. This is a second Ortho, he is also telling me to get an injection and my shoulder should feel better for a while at least. The basic suggestion by both Orthos is that I stick to flexibility and light dumbbells and keep getting cortisone injections until they don’t work anymore.
