Three months ago I tripped, fell over and hurt my left shoulder. It has become very painful in spite of seeing two physios who have given me conflicting advice. One (seen privately) says I should raise my arm two different ways to ensure i don't lose mobility in my shoulder, the other (NHS) says that doing this is traumatising the shoulder and stopping it getting better. I have also undergone surgery for breast cancer in the last month and I think the stress of that has made my shoulder worse (surgery successfully removed cancer and just intensive radiotherapy required). The pain in my shoulder in constant. It wakes me in the night and sometimes keeps me awake. I feel depressed, tearful and at my wits end, and fearful that my shoulder won't get better. On holiday in a week's time and moving house in 3 weeks. Should be a happy time but it just isn't. Please help me -though not sure anyone can . . .
