Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
Your muscle tendon is torn indicating difficulty in elevating your arm sideways. There is inflammation of the surrounding bursae (bags of fluid which act as shock absorbers of your shoulder joint and allow smooth movement of the joint), since they are inflamed, there is excess fluid collection and osteoarthrosis indicates inflammation of your cartilages.
