Shoulder injury at work


Q: I fell at work more than 2 months ago. Anterior dislocation of the shoulder and fracture of the humorous. Been in physical therapy for over 4 weeks now and i still have immense pain and cannot lift my arm more than my chest straight out and less than that to the side. My collar bone hurts sometimes and i get shooting pains down my arm. Was going to an ortho who sent me to a surgeon who in turn said i they both agree i wasnt healing fast enough and I should see a shoulder specialist. I am a bricklayer and my injury is to my right shoulder. I am truly worried.
