I’ve been dealing with a sore shoulder for 3 years. Steroid shots have made it tolerable but we’re only buying time. A week ago, I went in for surgery. The Dr. ground down the end of my collar bone at the A/C joint and scraped a bunch of arthritis out of the joint too. Over the weekend, this showed up... ...big, nasty bruise. My band plays in 11 days. Oh, the things I will do to get out of loading equipment.
