MRI Results - Good news and bad news
The bad news first - not only do I have a bone spur, but I also have a partially torn rotator cuff, torn cartilage and a cyst - the last two are most likely the result of waiting too long to go to the doctor.
This can all be taken care of with 1 day outpatient arthroscopic surgery. After the surgery, I will be on 4 weeks of "light duty", which means no driving. I can return to "full duty" after 12 weeks. Physical therapy starts one week after the surgery, for 11 weeks.
The good news is that the surgery can wait until January, so I can still provide promised coverage at work when everyone else is out for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas, and be available during our cut over to a new version of Peoplesoft HRMS. I can also take my annual New Year's trip to North Carolina to spend time with my parents.
