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.

ride the sofa for awhile and heal up properly

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

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.
