Ok so this just freakin’ hurts.
You see I had a calcium deposit on the end of the shoulder bone that was to be removed via Arthroscopic Acromioplasty -and- A biceps Tenodesis procedure. I was warned beforehand that if a rotator cuff tear was found while they were in there it would be repaired, however no tear APPEARED present on MRI.
Well when I snapped the post operative selfie that was posted Wednesday still under the left over anesthesia I didn’t really know what had taken place. My surgery had taken much longer than estimated due to a significant tear in that rotator cuff. The calcium deposit they were removing had pretty much turned my tendon into hamburger.
All fixed now. All fixed but my estimated recovery time has now doubled and the pain is everything that anyone who has had shoulder surgery will share in detail when given the opportunity.
So while I will be getting better soon….right now pain meds are my friend. My friend in relief even though I hate the way they make me feel overall, they do relieve the pain.
I’ll be back soon and in the mean time you know why I may be a bit absent.
