Recovering from Shoulder Surgery

Last Wednesday, June 11, Dr. Michael Wall stuck a camera and a variety of instruments into my left shoulder, cleaning out several years’ worth of debris.  I’m now in a sling, and start physical therapy tomorrow (HOORAY!). 

Overall, I have to say that my shoulder is feeling pretty damn good.  My surgeon was kind enough (or twisted enough) to give me a CD with videos of what he did arthroscopically, which I watched yesterday like it was some kind of train wreck.  Fixing my shoulder looked like repairing a wall in an ancient house—had to scrape out all the garbage, coffee grounds, dirt and leftover wool from weaving in order to clean it out.  Serious ugly in there, but getting better now.

I was actually in less pain 2 days post-surgery than I’d been pre-op.  So it was the right thing to do, in spite of the fact that I have to lay off volleyball and softball for the summer.  The sling isn’t getting in the way of my keyboarding, so there won’t be any health-related hiccups in the Electronic Investor publishing schedule.
