one handed typing fo' reel.
so everything went well. bought a sweet recliner earlier in the week (thanks spanky). percoset is awesome, neural block is even better. ate as much as I could post-op, definitely helping my state-of-mind.
numb left side is super-weird. ear, nostril, jaw, neck- all numb.
so, back to percs, green, oreos, and a screening of 'Slapshot.'

Aye, as long as you don't join the damn dirty ape race
I had a torn labrum repaired as well as a capsular shift. I start PT in a week and I think it is going to be quite a bitch at first! Enjoy the Percocet, I am almost out and I have to take 3-4 at a time for me to even notice them.

take care buddy, heal well. I haven't had a healthy left arm for almost 2 years- so i'm pretty psyched on the recovery process- stay up yo.
i'm gonna savor the percs for only 4-5 days, then switch to ibuprofen whole sale. I once had to be on 240mg/day of oxycontin for a few months, then be weaned off for 3 months more. Chemical dependancy sucks.
Time to slide, percs await.
Again SC- heal well.

You too buddy, I feel your pain. 5 Years of constant dislocations for me. I had to wait till the health insurance co pay was there and at the right price... Free!
Go buy yourself a loofah and use it when dry to scratch your back, for some reason it is almost orgasmic for me when on the Percs .

Sounds like it went well Biggins. Good to hear. I'm making small progress each day. I started a new job this past monday and of course that's presented it's own set of challenges and has made the recovery a little more painful.
My one word of advice now... Always do what the Physical Therapist tells you regarding home therapy.Because rich has nothing to do with money.

I was in a big car accident a few years back and needed lots of recovery and then PT. I was vigilant about my fitness and lower body rehab, pulminary embolism and broken femur were my biggest concerns so I didn't fuck around. I spent the summer finishing up my recovery by driving round the west hiking and camping. What I didn't do was anything about my upper body. I had broken many ribs and sustained some internal injuries, but I didn't break any arms or lose any mobility. That made me complacent and I got broke as a result. That winter on a boilerplate January sunday at Jay I broke my collarbone, then a year later I took a slam skating (brilliant I know, longboarding at night in a back alley in the bean... pot hole) and popped my arm out tearing the labrum and knocking the ball joint out with a violent bonk on the pavement. Thus, for the last four years I've managed to let my upper body get weaker and weaker while working my lower body just fine.
So... I'm pretty into the idea of fixing my shoulder, doing whatever I need to do to get strong again, and comin' in off the DL to kick some ass. Or at least be able to comfortably reach both arms above my head.
PT es beuno.
