But in really bad shape.
The surgery took almost twice as long as they expected, with significant damage to the cartilage and ligaments. They cleaned that up the best they could, and then discovered that the bicep was disconnected, so they had to reattach that. They also had to deal with some bone spurs and the labrum was a torn mess, and when allthat was donr, they used pins and screws to put the Glenoid back together. I’ll scan the scope pictures another day.
At any rate, I’m in a helluva lot of pain, but they did give me the greatest thing ever-this brace that goes over the shoulder and is filled with tubes that pump cold cold water through it constantly- it does more for pain relief than the meds.
Picked up Chuck Season 2, so my next two days are accounted for, and I start rehab on Friday. I won’t be online much because right now I am pretty gimped up atm. Thanks for all the kind words in previous threads.
Btw- What is the etiquette for tipping nurses. I had a great one last night who was just awesome, and I was going to get her a thank you card and a gift certificate somewhere. Is that appropriate?
