  • Is there a doctor in the forum

    Is there a doctor in the forum as I want some advice on my shoulder and upper arm, I fell over onto my upper right arm today and now find it really hurts to rise right arm and am wondering have I torn a ligament in my upper right arm or a muscle or worse my shoulder itself and has anyone else had this problem and what did they do about it and how long they were off work.

    AFM, I'm no doctor! I don't think any doctor would pretend to be able to diagnose an injury on a forum. The only advice I'd give is to go seek a clinic and get your shoulder and arm looked at by a professional. If you don't have insurance, most clinics will be able to work with you on payment. Don't let money worries keep you from getting help with the injury. You may have done serious damage that could cause you to lose the arm. That may seem dire, but it can happen. Please, AFM, go see a doctor!
    I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

        I have torn a ligament before, cartilages too. It hurts like fricking crazy, now go see a Doctor. I once had to finish building a house with torn cartilages in my left knee. For 3 months, popping pills like crazy to get past the pain, I was on a contract and no time to stop, no one to replace me. When I finished the build, I was in surgery 3 days after the final payment. Climbing scaffolding and ladders 6 days after surgery, wasn't the smartest thing to do, but we need to feed our family. I was fully recovered on that one in about a year, because I didn't rest, dumb.....

          Doesn't Australia have state run (socialized) medicine ? Is it that bad that you cant get a Dr. to look at it? If that's the case, pay attention people, thats what is coming here with President Barack Hussein Obama.

                        I went and had an operation on my shoulder key hole surgery on something called a roto cuff and as it was a emergency medicare payed for it, and if this is socialism where all contribute for the well being of everyone then I am fore it, I hear it is everyone for himself in the U.Sand only the rich are admitted to hospital I have been reading threads on Barack Obama and your views and thank Christ you don`t live live in Australia.
                        I would like to ask this question is because Obama is black that you don`t like him because that is the way it comes across.

                          We can arque socialized medicine for the next six months and not reach a consensus. I will say however that as bad as you may think our system is sick people come from all over the world to be healed here, because we have the very best hospitals and doctors in the world. If not for my cardiologist I would not be here now. 6 months ago I had arterial blockages (7) and was fortunate enough to have the countries best heart surgeon do my by-passes (7) He also did David Letterman's. His sucess rate is 99.7. Amazing doctor. In 6 weeks I was back to work and today I feel 25 years younger and am doing things that I've not done for years.

                          Lets address Mr. Obama. I hope, truley hope that no one is bashing this guy because he is black. You don't have to get racial to dislike this guy and his politics. Check his record in congress and the Illinois congress. In the time he's been in both he has accomplished absolutly NOTHING. That's right NOTHING. This man, though a charismatic speaker, truley has no solutions, no experiance and nothing to say other than to spew out the word Change every other sentence. Change is good I guess, but WHAT CHANGE? He has no plan and no direction. He is currently back pedeling on his promis to get us out of Irac. His economic policy would drive us back the Jimmy Carter miserey index days. In short the man just plain lacks the experiance to handle the job.
                          Black has nothing to do with it.

                              I agree. I thank God I live in the USA everyday.

                              Actually you have it all wrong my friend. If you go to the emergency room, you will see many many many people that do not speak English and do not have insurance. You see there is a law here that states that you cant be refused service because you dont have health insurance. As far as other health issues there is a program here in place already its called medicare and medic-aid that insures the elderly and the less fortunate. So maybe you need to go back and read some more about the U.S.

                              As far as you calling me a racist, show me where I once mentioned race? You can't because I didnt you jackass. Instead of accusing ME of things like that why don't you look in the mirror, as it's probably you who is the racist. I see Barack Obama as a liberal, YOU see him as a black man. Now go throw a boomerang, play some AC/DC and have a Fosters.
