In January 2015, which was my junior year in high school (Veterans High, Kathleen, GA), I was being recruited by some colleges to play college baseball. My dream was to play baseball as long as I could, and college was my next step. I was long tossing with some friends getting ready for my junior season when I felt a pop and heard a snap in my right elbow.

Leading up to my appointment with Dr. Andrew Cordover, I was having problems walking and holding things in my hands. I thought my problems were age related to arthritis. Instead, I had a bruised spinal cord and arthritis in my neck that was pinching nerves.

My story begins in my early 50's when I began to have left hip pain. I sought conservative treatment that included physical therapy and injections. It did not take me long to realize the injections only helped for a short period of time. After receiving my last injection, with absolutely no pain relief, I knew I had to seek a permanent solution.

Soon after retirement, I began to experience some mild pain in my left hip when walking, running and playing tennis. At first, the pain was only an aggravation and I just went about my life and physical activities. I told my primary care physician about the hip pain and he prescribed a NSAID (Mobic) which gave some relief. I continued my 3.5 mile walking route and tennis several times a week, but as time went on, my hip pain became worse and more aggravating. I put up with the hip pain until it began to impact my activities and I decided to seek orthopaedic involvement.

In 2013, I hurt my shoulder my senior year in high school. After softball season ended, I went to see Dr. Emily Casey the day after graduation to get checked out. I was very nervous because I had already signed a softball scholarship. So when my MRI results came back as tendonitis I was relieved. But after an entire summer of PT, then PT during my basically entire Fall semester of college, and 1 cortisone shot later, the only option left was surgery.
