Shoulder update (parts one and two)
The nerve test yesterday was a bit like that scene in The Right Stuff when a doctor sticks a needle into a man’s hand and uses electricity to clench his fist over and over but not nearly as bad. It was electric shocks and then a small needle stuck in various arm and hand muscles. It confirmed what Dr Salvo thought: the deltoid muscle is ‘denervated’. From my online reading it seems it has a chance of healing itself starting two months from now or there’s a chance a neurosurgeon can fix it.
