Thanks, Marie. I don't think anyone said diabetes causes it, but that it's yet one more thing that we're at risk for as we have this long-term chronic condition.
I'm getting better. I still have some range of motion issues though.
In fact, the onus is on me to motivate and get back to the gym. It will be a pain in the butt, but I'm ready and my shoulder is strong enough now. I won't be able to do a lot of weight bearing exercises on my right shoulder, so I'll avoid yoga. But I'm not getting the pain spikes I had initially, so I can move pretty freely again. PT has improved my shoulder, so I need to do the same with the rest of my body with physical activity. I'm thinking now is the time to start pilates and take some swim classes. I think at my age the only aerobics class that won't throw me in to turmoil is spin, and I've been doing those on and off for a long time.
The bad news is my employer decided to change our health insurance, and I found out yesterday my PT office doesn't work with Cigna (my current plan through the end of the day is with Aetna). There is a work around with their out of network coverage, but it's limited. I'm trying to figure out how I can keep my current treatment team in place. They say they'll work with me, but if it ends up being too complex, I might have to go to a new PT clinic. I'm not happy about that at all. There is always something. Always. :(frowning:
