Shoulder Surgery

May 28th, 2017 · 1 Comment

In the interest of using this as a diary, I need to document the recent left shoulder surgery, and I’ll provide an update.

Two complete rotator cuff tears and bone impingement, and something else I can’t remember right now. Surgery done Feb 7.

It is now 4 months (16 weeks), and I am feeling pretty much back to normal, thanks partially to the excellent Physical Therapy treatments by Mark. I see the doctor again next Thursday. With the right shoulder 6 years ago I was able to go back to basketball at 16 weeks, so I’m hopeful that my long injured-reserve time is almost over. I really miss it.

    I suspect your excellent physical health and dedication to working hard on your therapy are the most significant factors in your recovery. Hope you’re back to shooting hoops soon, but how about letting this be the last shoulder tear you suffer?
