Thomson, GA |
Very disappointing. Doc didn't want to order an MRI originally bc of previous surgeries. My old surgeon recommended MRI with an arthrogram. MRI showed a rotator cuff tear & he told me there was no tear. He had no idea what was wrong with my shoulder. Had old surgeon do surgery & rotator was torn 75%. How does one miss that?
