Upade-Shoulder surgery Login/Join

posted
Tomorrow morning I have to be at the hospital ay 6am to check in for surgery on my left shoulder, rotator repair which I had 27 years ago on my 40th birthday and remove some debris in the joint itself and 2 other tears then I start therapy 8am Friday morning. So that being said I most likely won't be on SP but briefly until I start feeling better. It was quite painful the last time and now I'm 27 years older. whine

For the first time since I started hunting I missed it completely this last year because of the issues with my shoulder and the amount of pain I been having especially if I got it in the wrong position.

At least the surgery got moved up 2 weeks from when it was first scheduled.

Wishing you a speedy and complete recovery, Al. The next weeks won't be much fun but keep your eyes on the end result. We'll be watching for updates.

Had both shoulders done a couple of years ago .One done then when I could feed myself again the other one done. Hang in there, its a rough few weeks ahead but it does get better. Just not as quick as we want it too. Take your sleep any time you can get it, long nights ahead. HANG IN THERE!

Well I'm home, the pain block is working wonderfully, not looking forward to it wearing off tomorrow morning because therapy starts at 8am tomorrow morning.

Good luck.

I am 7 weeks post rotator repair on my right shoulder.

Went to the range today. Shooting a LCRx was not bad. Even with a two handed hold, offhand shooting of a contender got old pretty fast (just the gun weight on the outstretched arm).

Had right rotator done in 2000, works pretty good still at 68. MUST do the rehab though. It is critical to recovery.

I'm still kicking but have been kind of miserable, not sleeping much maybe an hour or 2 at a time then oldest grand son shared his virus with me, some type of flue bug according to my son. Vertigo is one of the symptoms and it seems to be easing up somewhat today its been 4 days now. That's about it, got to see Doc Monday afternoon.

Hang in there. It does get better slowly. Im on week 11 after rotator cuff, bicep reattached, and two bone spurs removed from the right shoulder. At five weeks I threw out the arm brace. Ive still got limited range of motion but physical therapy is slowly helping. Do exactly what the doctor says.

That is almost exactly the procedures used on my shoulder then add 2 tear repairs inside the joint. My problem is Osteo arthritis, had a lot of floating debris inside the joint.

Shoulders are though. I busted mine up pretty bad at 19, took 3 doctors 5 hours to put or back together, and it took me about 2 years to get it back to normal. Fast forward 30+ years and its constant source of pain and aggravation. Im sure arthritis it's a big part of its issue now.

Glad to hear it's getting better! Keep up with the physical therapy and it'll get there sooner.
