I am a 53 year old woman who has been having shoulder problems for about 1 year. Pain, stiffness, then it seemed all at once I couldn't raise my left arm. I don't recall any injury; and have been seeking treatment since October 2006. I have had a manipulation under general anesthesia, but still am unable to bring my arm around to my back, or to the opposite front pocket.
Now, November 2007, I have been diagnosed with breast cancer--infiltrating ductal carcinoma, grade II, and ductal carcinoma in situ, noncomedo type, nuclear grade II with associated calcifications. The largest focus of carcinoma measures 1.2 cm.
This is my journey.
