Shoulder overhaul

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Shoulder overhaul

Glad to hear you are recovering.

I had both knees replaced within the past year. The doctors and therapists told me I was abnormal and told me not to talk to other patients about my recovery. Had the surgeries on a Tuesday and by the following Monday I was walking in for my first therapy session carrying my walker. They told me to at least use a cane for my Wednesday appointment, I carried it in too. Went in for my 2 week post-op check up with the dr. and he commented to another dr., "he's two weeks out of surgery and watch him walk". No cane, no limp, nothing. If you didn't know I had the surgery, you couldn't tell.Therapy is normally 8 weeks and released back to work after 3 months. I was back to work in three weeks and done with therapy in 4 weeks, for both knees.

In my opinion, the bone on bone grinding from walking a couple miles per day for work was far worse than muscle pain after surgery. Muscle pain goes away, bone on bone never goes away. Maybe being an infantry machine-gunner in the Marine corp made me tolerant of bone on bone pain and muscle pain non-existent.

I agree, I will wear out this body and still follow the good book.

OK, I've only had the Ride out 5 times, that was between surgeries.Jon boat season is over, so let's see if I can wear this thing out (yak & shoulders).

Ready to rock!!!
