I plan on going back to work on Monday and see how it goes.
Good luck I cant belive the diffrence it has made in the wifes ability to lift things over her head.

    Boy am I lucky. 63 and never broke anything, still have all my fingers though I farm, lost most of my hair long ago, atttibutable to kids, I guess.

    My wife slipped on ice, fell backwards and caught herself on her hands and broke both wrists las year. I got to play Mr. Mom and it's not fun.

    I'm always very aware of where I am, what I'm doing and my footing. The older we get, the longer it takes to heal and sometimes you never heal. I lost 3 friends over the years to broken hips. All 3 never recovered and all 3 eventually died from complications.

    Take your time, I'd not go back to work until I had to absolutely go back. The company I work for has short term disability for 6 months BTW.

    I like the 'staple' look. Nice and straight, obviously the surgeon was a craftsman......

    Looks good. Just ease back into it. Don't want to see it again. It might hurt more next time.

    I had shoulder surgery in February. PT officially ended in May. I'm doing exercises given to me by the therapist every other day. It was my shooting shoulder to boot. Bone spurs had my rotator cuff locked up. I've got about 95% of movement back. Of all things, stick with the PT. At 63 these things are just no fun.

    Had shoulder surgery ...-dsc05284-1-.jpg
    Had my shoulder surgery 7 weeks ago. 5/4/12. Torn rotator, torn bicept, bone spur and impingement. Been doing PT for 6 weeks, have at least 6 more. Working to get movement and strength back slowly. Exercise and ice every day. Can't shoot a pellet gun yet. Healing is slow at 62 years old. The sling came off permanently today. Kind of worried; have a first season limited bull tag in CO for 10/13/12. Probably can't shoot my .338 for months. Doc says I should be OK to hunt by Oct. Youngsters will have to pack out the meat again like last year.
