News in the Ongoing Arm Saga: We (finally) made it up to Flagstaff and I saw a new doctor who was very encouraging. There doesn’t appear to be any permanent nerve damage, and no recommendation for surgery at this time. Now they’re calling it “pronator syndrome” and are sending me back to PT for continued treatment and traction that should ultimately relieve the numbness in my fingers.

I’ll take it. 🙂

    PT is good. At least that’s what I’ve found when I had PT for a rotator cuff problem. I find growing older has some aches & pains associated with it–and the more we can do to stay mobile, the better we are.

    You mean we aren’t in our 20’s anymore? 😉
    Thanks for the support. I do appreciate it.

    Oh, that’s good news, Sunny. I hope the PT helps and that the numbness fades. I’m thinking of you.

    Colleen – yes, I’ve tried acupuncture, and it was one of the few times it didn’t work for me. But i appreciate the suggestion.
    Jamie – thanks for the good wishes!

    Hi Sunny-
    Glad to hear that everything is going to be ok and you will be relieved of some of the pain. I had a rare opportunity today to look through your website and it really made me smile. The pictures brought back some very pleasant memories. Thank you…and take care of yourself (and Roy too).
