The new hope

It’s now been over a week since that steroid injection and so far nothing has returned to normal.

Madison’s pains have gradually disappeared through the week but the swimming is not yet what it used to be.

The steroids injected merely acted as anti-inflammatory agent, they are not like anabolic steroids some athletes use.

When the shoulder bones do not fuse, then the friction causes inflammation of the area. The steroids merely counteract on that inflammation.

So far the pain has gotten better but no more than 15 minutes of breaststroke can be swum.

It is remarkable that still no freestyle or backstroke can be done. Well, that means back to the drawing board and to see what the doctors can come up with. But till then there is still time to try. I reckon the diagnosis of OS Acromiale remains the same.

Normally it takes about a week for the injection to take effect. It has been only 7 days since. Let’s wait and see.
