A small problem with training.......my shoulder doesnt work

I think sometimes when we have planned a new goal, the world throws everything at us to test us to see if we really want to do it.

A few months ago, whilst climbing, I damaged my shoulder. Straight away I went to the doctor to have this examined and checked out, in UK. The doctor told me that it wasn't that bad, should get better over a few weeks and here's some pain killers in the meantime. Oh and if its not fixed or better in 2-4 weeks, come back and we will have another look. Now, as my shoulder feels like a bone is sticking out in the wrong place, this seemed a little complacent. Anyway, what do I know, he's the specialist, so I carried on.

After 4 weeks the pain was still there, so i went to a specialist in Germany where I am working at the moment. His initial "concern" that showed on his face was a bit worrying, and his comment of "why do English doctors never check anything properly?", gave me a strange scared feeling. He sent me promptly for an x-ray and also an MRT scan.

This is one of the pictures taken with the MRT scan showing what appears to be something sticking out of the top of my shoulder. Now, I am no specialist, but that looks a bit wrong....

Hopefully will be fixed soon, now that I have a doctor I trust....and then back to training.....
