What is course of treatment and or complications due to other problem of MD ?? MRI shows fluid in joint of left shoulder. One dr. blew it off...now what? Femaile has history of PE and other conditions so she can't afford to put off and have this develop into serious problem that may require surgery. Female not a candidate for general if surgery indicated...so then what?

I can tell you that most of the folks I talk to have their bursitis treated by steroid injections.  I do not know if MD excludes this as a possible treatment.  I would definitely talk to your doctor about whether or not this is an option.
