My name is Cade and I am 18 yrs old...

My name is Cade and I am 18 yrs old. My favourite thing to do is going to the gym. On February, 3 2018 I had a bench press accident which left me with a very sore shoulder I barely could use it. I went to the doctor a couple days after this accident the doctor told me my shoulder is fine and to go to physio which I did. After 4 weeks of that it was still very sore so I went to the doctor once again they said just rest you will be fine. I kept saying my rotator cuff feels like something is not right. They didn’t really seem to believe me. Finally 2 months after this accident I was fed up with these doctors not doing anything for me. So I called a private MRI clinic and they got me in the same day. And within 2 days my results were in. I had a full thickness tear in my infraspinatus. So I think we should keep these private clinics because the pubic system sucks and they don’t seem to want to help you. If it wasn’t for a private clinic I would be living with this tear for awhile cause no doctor seems to want to help.
