You ARE getting advice! Just don't expect that people will always tell you what you want to hear.

My advice would be to find a line of work that doesn't require heavy shoulder use. I have two bad shoulders. I work a desk job, and although reaching for the mouse on my PC can be painful it doesn't prevent me from working. I also have a bad knee, ankle, hip and back. Forget about what you can't do and do what you can. Also, find another place to live. There's a way out of every situation. Sometimes it requires hard work and hard choices but if you want your life to change you have to take the first step.

If you want advice about how to collect SS disability contact SS, this website is not the place for that.If you want advice on what to do about caspular laxity, post on this website.The reason your doctor wants you to do rehab is that you have been diagnosed with MDI (Multidirectional Instability).The operation you would need is a capsular shift (arthroscopic plication), with possible labral repair for a bankart or SLAP lesion. The reason your doctor doesn't want to operate yet is that sometimes MDI can be resolved with cuff strengthening, but that doesn't seem to be the case for you so far.Some surgeons will operate right away, others try rehab first. Yours wants rehab first.

I was just wondering if anyone with these same problems are having problems paying there bills due to lack of being able to work, due to the pain and dislocations, either fully dislocating your shoulder(s) or partially. I am currently dealing with partially dislocating my shoulders..I am not able to go back to work, boss says until my doctor releases me 100% better. And my dr today said she cant, because this is a cronic issue that will be with me for the rest of my life..and I am thinking great, will there be no end to this frustration? Anyone with advice please let me know.I live with 2 other room mates at this time and landlord lives right above and will not allow me to get assistence in anyway, because she gets SS and I will mess that up for her. What else can I do.I am a single mom, but son is not with me full time.Mindy
