Default Surgery results

Well I am typing one handed. More was wrong than suspected with my left shoulder Doc removed one inch of my left collar bone, repaired a torn rotator cuff, and removed the bursa. They did a nerve block of my left arm, my fingers, and hand are numb so it is like my left arm is paralized right now.

I just took the first oxicodone, because pain is hitting me now, but also have bag of ice on my shoulder.

Just wanted to let all of you know.

From recent experience talking, just take it easy. I didn't and now am paying for it. 3-4 days and major pain will start to let up. I hope your recovery goes quick. Ice works wonders after 45 minutes. I packed my neck in ice 3-4 times a day for the first week and it did help. Thats some strong pain med your on, be careful. Good luck on that rehab!

Pain... let me tell you about a new level of pain. I'm just glad I got my whitetail buck on Saturday, and just look at the picture and get a big ol grin on my face.
