I have just been told the results of my MRI. I have had worsening shoulder pain with reaching up, typing, trying to throw anything, lifting heavy objects, and trying to move my arm above my shoulder.
I was told today that I have a 50% supraspinatus bursal tear. I have tried to do some research online, and can't find much about treatment. I'd like to avoid surgery, but don't even know if surgery is usually indicated.
I am not asking you to prescribe, but I would like to know 1) what complications a supraspinatus bursal tear can mean if untreated, and 2) a couple of intelligent questions to ask the doctor so I am better prepared when I see him/her.
Thank you for your time!
