My shoulder started acting up a few years ago. There was always a click, crunching sound in there, bujt no pain. About two years ago, I noticed a big crack everytime I did a benchpress. And that was with light weight, 100lbs. After a few months I couldn't do them any more because of the pain. I tried to do a pushup instead and found I couldn't even do one. Anything that involved lifting my arm from the shoulder would cause a click and pain.
Last spring I had an xray and mri done. It showed that I had bone spurs on the top part of my shoulder(ac joint). We did cortisone shots and therapy, but the root problem is rough bones. I decided to go thru the summer and do it now.
Yesterday I went back for my two week follow up. I'll be doing a month of therapy, but can start moving my arm unless it causes pain. I'm still limited to lifting 10 pounds in that arm.
I"M GOING FISHING NEXT WEEK!!!!!! I'll make sure I put no pressure on my bad arm. I won't do any bridge fishing since pulling them up with a net is alot of work. I can use the time to learn sodbanks and the beach.
