Shoulder Surgery pending
So last November I was playing Ice Hockey and a galute crosschecked me then fell on me! Fast forward to now, left shoulder still dislocated, still feels like a tooth ache in my joint. So after PT, Massage, Chrio and Acupuncture (not in that order) have all failed to give pain and/or range of motion relief, my Board Certified shoulder repairman is going to fix the two tears in my Supraspinatus. I should have asked if they were both tendon or a combo of muscle and tendon. That is the easy part. I am not too worried about that procedure.
His idea that the bicep tendon may be loosing its attachment point is a little more worrisome. If I wake up with a big scar instead of the little dots, then I will know it went badly and plan b was enacted. That is not good.
Anybody else been through this? I play right handed so he was confident that there would be no degradation of my guitar playing ability. He hasn't even heard me jam!
My band mates are hoping for a talent induction procedure and might be taking up a collection for that!
