Just had my left shoulder surgery last Wednesday. Rotator cuff prosthesis, bone spur removed, 3 muscles "pegged" into bone, acromion bone debrided to make more room for everything.
So here I sit in a sling, just getting lucid from the early morning (5 AM) hit of Hydrocodone. Yeah, narcotics so I can sleep and prune juice & high fiber breakfas cereal so I can counteract the constipating effects of the narcotics. Well, it all seems to work.
So today, 4 days after surgery, I am going on a 5 mile walk. Maybe I'll need less fiber after the stroll.
Physical therapy begins in 2 more weeks. Got to be totally ready for an April 16-22 Grand Canyon backpack. Good to have that as a goal to stay fit.
So that's my 100,000 mile repair. Had to do it. And it seems that, once past 60, I'm having more of these repairs due to my "energetic" past - and present.
