...but, supposedly, someone can. The upshot is that of the four rotator cuff muscles, one is fine, two have small rips, and one has a big tear. None are ripped all the way through. Also I have a badly inflamed (or something) biceps tendon, light-to-moderate arthritis, and am showing signs of developing adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) which I had before on the other side. So nothing is that horrible, I just have a lot of moderately bad things that are compounding each other. I'm supposed to go to another guy who, I guess, does shoulder surgery to get his opinion. The carousel continues.... Pictures are pretty cool, though.
