Another "ologist" Is Added to the Roster

As a blogger, you're always looking for things to blog about. On a blog about surviving leukemia with a stem cell transplant, things find you.

My new orthopedist recommends I see a rheumatologist because the MRI I had last week showed arthritis in my right shoulder, among other things. I'm going to see my oncologist in New York on Thursday and will filter this all through him. The orthopedist may or may not give me a cortisone shot based what my oncologist says. I don't think he'll like the idea of surgery. I don't.

My orthopedist won't do cortisone shots based on my history. Hopefully they can come up with a plan to bring you relief.
