So you're at the nail salon?? hope it feels better later...

Actually I've been to one of those places a couple of times.  Back when I had my other toe giving me fits with the ingrown crap, I decided it couldn't hurt.  Just imagine a big ole red neck country boy heading into one of them nail saloons.  The Ladies all looked at me with a grin on their faces.  I'm sure my face was red but I was seeking some relief.  Well she soaked my toes down good and got to work.  I walked out of there with some pretty toes and much relief.  I told the good ole boys at my course I got myself a pedigree now and I'm pain free.  The only problem was after a while the nail grew back  with a vengeance so I went to see a foot doc this time.  He performs a procedure where a portion of the nail is cut out so the rest of it can flatten out and not curl under.  I had the right big toe fixed two years ago and not a problem. Today the left toe was fixed so I'm good to go. No more trips to them fancy toe washing places for me.   ;)

Injury update:

 

Definitely a rotator cuff injury but the doc wants to treat it with injections and anti inflammatory meds first.

 

He says it's not bad enough for surgery yet.

 

Got injections on Friday and played golf pain free over the weekend, so maybe there is hope.

That's great. Anytime you don't have to get cut is a good thing.

I avoid getting cut anytime I can. We've seen a few op's go bad.

Take care of it! The injections are good but are a band aid!

I just had the same diagnosis in the lead shoulder. Shoulder impingement, some tearing. Cortisone shots and physical therapy first. The physical therapy is all done online which is cool and much less $$ than going somewhere. $75 for a year subscription. The site is called trainer-rx.com. Highly recommend, I think your doc has to set up an invite for you

Take it easy on the old shoulder buddy.  I've heard the rotator cuff surgery is a biotch!  :blink:

On line, I'm definitely going to check it out. I had similar, cortisone shots first a while ago then shoulder started acting up again. Doc sent me to physical therapy and I wasn't hopeful. Dam if it didn't work. Shoulder has been pain free. PT was expensive even with the co-pay.

Quick update on all things Shankster. Rotator cuff is back to normal, but I've developed some painful arthritis in my left Ac Joint. Snow has taken over for the grass, looks like April will be the next time I'll get to play. Might try out the simulator in the next few weeks.

 

Been inactive lately due to some family stuff going on health wise, I'll be hit or miss for a while. If I'm back on by then. Happy Holidays and GO BLUE!!

I've never had shoulder issues (knock on wood).  Before every round I do arm circles, forward and backward, starting small getting larger.  Think about the days you don't play golf... how often do you put your hands above your shoulders?  I was only doing it when I shampooed my hair; that is, what hair I have left!

When I had rotator cuff issues the doc gave me a few excersises and rest, but I HAD to keep up on both- that meant light duty at work, which meant less work, and a lot of long frustrating days. I eventually had it in both shoulders, same R/X. I expressed my concerns, and the doc pretty much read me the riot act- I believe "stay down" was used at least three times. That surgery is rough, glad I never got there. And all from chasing the nephews around (not golf related). Damn.

This is not an injury as it's more in the what ails ya type situation.  With that said I'm heading in early this morning to get the results of my PSA (prostate) exam.  I had the big "C" several years ago and all has been good up until six months ago when my PSA level showed a very slight increase.  Since I had my prostate removed, I was hoping no bad cells were left behind.  Ya'll pray that my test results today will show no further increase.  The good thing about this place is we are all family and it gives a warm feeling knowing folks are thinking good thoughts.  I'll post results when I return home later this morning.
