MUSHY'S MOOCHINGS: SHOULDER SURGERY UPDATE – HE’S GOING BACK IN!

SHOULDER SURGERY UPDATE – HE’S GOING BACK IN!

Yep, the shoulder is “frozen,” or what Dr. Brady technically calls “Adhesive Capsulitis” and he is going back in Tuesday the 26th!

The procedure was described as going back into two of the previous five holes, cutting the scare tissue away, and freeing the shoulder. He then manipulates the arm in all directions to ensure complete free range of mobility. The surgery will be at 9:30AM and I will be back in physical therapy at 4PM!

I sure hope I am still drugged! That has to hurt like a sombitch!

Basically, it was not because I was so long in getting to therapy (5 weeks) that caused the “freezing” but instead I am a fast healer! Good for some things and bad for others I suppose!
The severity of the rotator cuff repair I had, warranted the extended post-surgery wait before going to PT.

Oh, Mushy love, I'll be thinking of you.. what a pain (literally). Let's hope this is the start of the end to all of that trouble, eh? (Big hug and a squeeze - I always find a hug is no good without a sqeeze!) x

Get better soon! I have a friend who had a frozen shoulder. It took a while, but she's fine now.

Becky said...

This time for post-surgery re-hab, when it comes to liftin' those Macs and Killians, you're gonna have to alternate hands!

(You might even want to invest in one of those ass-washers---what do they call 'em,---bidets, or some kinda shit! Or lack thereof...!)

I am a slow healer, I would rather be a fast healer!

Sorry you have to go back in but it will be worth it. Keep us posted!

Ron Southern said...

Glad I don't have to keep you company; I'm too squeamish for words!

Mushy said...

Ah Ron, what things we could discuss under the influence!

Suldog said...

Similar to my cousin's advice, but I'd make a pitch to your doc for the strongest meds he can lay on you. If you have to pretend to be a bit of a sissy, do it. Get the meds and you can repair your rep later :-)

Debbie said...

I'm so sorry. This has been going on so long for you. The image looks bad! Keep us up to date. You are suffering because you are a fast healer? OMGoodness

OMG - I love the illustration and I'm in ecstasies of revulsion over any surgical procedure that involves "stab wounds." *sharp intake of breath, here*

I hope this all comes out ok for you. Amazing bones and tissues can be such resilient and yet fragile things?

Kevin said...

Good luck with your surgery on Tuesday, sir. Going under the knife is no fun.

Kuanyin said...

Bummer, man! My prayers are with you!

david mcmahon said...

Cheers

David
