So on Monday I had my arthroscopic shoulder surgery. The plan was to repair a torn labrum and trim back some bone that was causing me to have impingement syndrome. Once they got in, they found the labrum was in better shape than they were expecting, but the rotator cuff was worse. They ended up just trimming off frayed bits of both the labrum and rotator cuff, but didn't actually have to sew up either one. They still trimmed back the impinging bone and cleaned up some bursitis. My recovery is looking like it will be about a month. It's pretty sore and my activity is very limited. I'm off work for this and next week, but I've had to do a little emergency support on a couple of occasions already. Mostly I'm just laying around and watching movies and getting all foggy on oxycodone (Percocet). I'll try not to get hooked, but I can see how it would be habit forming. I'm just able to type with both hands a little today so I'll be emerging from lurk mode. Just thought I'd let anyone who might be interested know. Hopefully my new shoulder will be better than ever (or at least better than lately). I'm sure looking forward to riding and skiing more. Being a slug is ok for a little while, but it gets old pretty quickly. Even if I'm all hopped up on narcotics (and I sure am right now, dude). -- Matt "Gravity.
