Hi Winkin. My name is Carol. I am a 39 yo RN and had left shoulder surgery on 2/8/2008. SAD,DCR and bone spurs removed. Now 8.6 weeks out, I am not back to work (extensive typing and floor work in OB GYN officce and childbirth educator.)My primary complaint is left ac joint area?,front of shoulder, down bicep and stops at elbow. My OS says impingement at surgery site with inflammation. Referred pain down long and short head of bicep tendon. Tried NSAIDS, stopping PT x 2 weeks, and po prednisone. All to no avail Now I am back to PT twice a week and am having an intrarticular cortisone inj. under fluoroscopy on 4/4. Not sure why the persistent inflammation. Now that you are 2.5+ years after this post, what happened? Did it resolve? What did it take?I hope you are better and I appreciate any input you can give.Thanks

I had arthroscopic acromioplasy done jan 2005, started back to work June 2005 (as a registered nurse). Past few weeks having pain again. The pain goes down my arm to my elbow and down my shoulder blade. The pain down my shoulder blade is new. Anyone experience anything like this? I had impingement before but this is a different pain.

This is the signature
