    Updating after my 6 week check up. I went in to this week fully prepared to have all restrictions waived only to get a swift kick to the sack. Restrictions were increased up to 35lbs evenly distributed between 2 hands and still no impact for another 5 weeks. I was not mentally prepared for that...at all. Totally unexpected on my end but no complaints. Highly recommend silicon scar sheets/gel.

    Well, back to work tomorrow. Itís hard to be mellow because I feel pretty good. An occasional bump to the shoulder and I remember pretty quickly.

    Been drinking bone broth at the wifeís incistence, taking some Tylenol. All in all pretty smooth.

    Last week was my first back at work. Pretty tired and sore at the end. Just laying around today.

    All in all pretty good.

    Sorry for the lack of update I was awaiting my next follow up visit to post. I have been focused on regaining strength. I am still made instantly aware if I try and do too much. Felt like I survived a car wreck after my first and only float trip. I definitely still have those "oh fuck" moments. EMG likely coming for the left forearm/wrist pain. Right fingers still have no feeling

    Since it's been over a year, an update is due. Floated the lower salmon last fall and put in 40 days on a very abbreviated season this past winter with multiple impacts that were not planned or would have ever been advised. The discs have withheld an absolute beating. I am extremely pleased with my ROM. I still have nerve sensitivity issues but are those due to ulnar neuropathy or the ACDA surgery. Either way, I am very pleased with my outcome and I hope all the others who are still recovering from their procedures are doing well!

    Do they ever recommend stem cell injections to get those nerves back to working?

    Artificial Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (ACDA)

    Hey P!

    I have had 2 rounds of PRP(Nov & Feb). The evidence is not there for stem cells in this application. All options have been on the table from yurp to clinics in the grand cayman.

    Getting good at filling these little fuckers up!

    Hopefully decompression of the ulnar nerve helps.

    I had the ulnar decompressed in my dominant hand. Along with being relieved of some lose calcifications that had anchored in guyen's canal. There was some nominal acute pain intermittently. Not enough to make me want to have the procedure. But, I had lost my grip... couldn't sign my name.

    35 years and I haven't had a problem since. Just some discomfort with substantive weather changes.

    Small successes can be life changing.

    You've won a big one and pushed back time...

    nice to know \:~)

    FKNA R! This makes me smile.

    For you and for the chance of success ahead.

    To hear that it is still working out for ya is incredible.

    Non dominant hand but my grip strength is gone and atrophy is noticable.

    Just certified Wuhan Virus free. All systems go!
