My mom was told she doesn’t qualify for shoulder replacement because she is in a wheelchair. #Advice #GettingHelp #CharcotMarieToothDisease
My mom just has X-rays taken of her shoulders because they have been causing extreme pain in her arms. The doctors basically said her shoulders are so bad from arthritis that she’d need to have replacement surgery. The recovery stage involves not leaning on her shoulders so they told her that she does not qualify to get surgery because she is chair bound. In other words she is going to have to live with the pain for the rest of her life. Has anyone experienced this before? I just find it crazy that in today’s world, they haven’t figured out a way to be inclusive when it comes to helping people like my mom. Anyone have any thoughts or any advice on where to go from here?
