Just scheduled surgery to repair my other torn labrum (right shoulder this time) on February 4. Two seasons cut short is better I suppose than missing an entire season.
I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.

I just got an MRI last night for my shoulder. If it turns out that surgery is inevitable, I will wait until at least April. And I wouldn't plan on drinking too much post-op.You'll be way too high on Oxy.
Good luck man - I hope it turns out better than those PowSpatPluses!

dude, i spatulized my shoulder so I needed surgery ASAP or it would just keep getting worse leading to full invasive surgery, plus i will need to work in the summer.. And no, i'm not drinking, but if and when I have no pain and get off the meds, i'll probably start in on the liquor, beer is too fattening if you're just sitting around.No longer stuck.

pain is almost gone and now the long road of recovery begins. Recovering from surgery wasn't as hard nor am I as gimped up as I thought. For instance, I'm typing with two hands now. It's a pretty weird feeling when I go to PT and can only move my arm so much in certain directions. Not something I've ever really experience before.

I remember people telling me that shoulder surgery was one of the more painful procedures out there before I went in for arthroscopic surgery ten years ago. I thought I must've had a super high pain tolerance because I never had an issue with pain.
It's now that I'm four weeks post-op from my open shoulder surgery that I realize why people said that. It's a whole different ballgame.
That said, I was typing with both hands within a couple of days. Must be the way my chair is situated in front of my keyboard tray and the fact that this sling has a four inch thick pillow that helps keep my arm up higher when lounging back in my computer chair.
