On the other hand, it was very disheartening that my shoulder was the worst it's been. In retrospect, I should have shifted to kick only workouts at the very first sign of strain six weeks ago. I'm hoping my bicep tendon is just very inflamed, and that it's nothing more serious. Because it hurt to swim every stroke except back today, I made an appt with an orthopedist for Friday for an eval. If it can't be fixed with a cortisone shot and it isn't surgical (don't think so), I will probably do PRP. I was referred to Dr Bradley, the Steelers doc and best PRP expert in the area.
