My Diet Nurse arranged for me to see the Practice GP who specialised in Orthopedics, who referred me to get an X-Ray, and I have a follow up appointment to see my GP (not the same one, although same practice).
During today's appointment with the Diet Nurse she was showing me the X-Ray results from the Radiographer, and even she didn't understand most of the medical jargon, but I did recognise 1 phrase that's got me worried "Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis". I know it's only one phrase among a load of others, so nothing should be assumed from that, but to explain why I'm so concerned - probably the most famous victim of ALS is Stephen Hawking.
I'm just hoping it's either a mis-diagnosis or (more likely) I simply misunderstood the context.

The "diet nurse" had no business telling you anything about the X-Ray or the Radiology report. Where I live that could be a dismissible offense.
I wonder if "Rotator Cuff" was in that report.
I know when I had my Rotator Cuff issue, I had problems with swimming, and about anything else that required shoulder movement.
