Yesterday my intrepidation was assuaged during my 6 week post surgery follow up. I learned that the popping I heard / felt was prolly breaking scare tissue. To tear anything would prolly had to happen by falling on my arm. The fact that these pops occurred while in the sling would not have done damage. now begins the next step in rehab: getting range of motion back. I keep my eyes on the prize of riding again I will endure the painful stretching exercises. I was told I could ride again when I can get my hand on the handlebar although no single track. Today I have PT, afterwards I will start riding stationary bike @ health clubs. I do have my road bike and wind trainer @ my neighbors. I am still days away from being able to ride my mountain bike on pavement. Snow is forecast for the weekend here. Yesterday it was 16 degrees @ 6:30AM. I am ready to be back outside.
This weekend I get booted from the pad because the host is having a gaggle of overnight family guests. I don’t know if I will or can return. Because I am out of the sling I can sleep in a sleeping bag on the floor of my van and park back @ my neighbors. I still can’t really cook as the function of my right arm is not up to work.
The shoulder pain is different and in some ways worse than the surgery, at least I am only self medicating. last night I slept flat on the bed, however I couldn’t find a comfortable way to hold my arm. I am sort of typing w/ 2 hands as seen by occasional capital letters.
Boston won the World Series last night in Boston.
Yesterday I met w/ an attorney I used for selling my house whom I used to work with @ boeing. We reviewed property surveys to discover that numerous litigation issues surround this piece I had been looking at. I asked his advise, he said walk away. I am heeding it.
I have my bled Formula T1 brake to put back on my bike. I am able and encouraged to use my arm but only do light work.
My saga now turns to rehabilitation.
