    No good ouch

    Thinking about elective shoulder surgery? I'd think again. OUCH!

    The 3 oxycodienes every 4 hours barely makes a dent in pain level.

    Hope everything went well with the surgery. If so, the pain should go away
    in a few weeks. My separated shoulder and fractured collar bone are healing
    well also. Actually went for my first bike ride this past Sunday. 5 1/2 weeks
    since it happened. Was a little painful but not nearly bad enough to require
    that kind of pain killer. Hope it heals quickly. Try some of that peach juice,
    that'll cure anything .

    Tell Amy, Scott and I said hey as well.

    It wasn't *really* elective. I guess I elected to have the rotator cuff repaired or face never-ending pain and permanent disability, but it was pretty much mandatory. I was just trying to sound funny....either that, or it was all the meds (BTW, these things work so much better when you wash them down with IPA).

    At my post-op visit today they gave me pics they took during the surgery. I'll put them up because I know everyone's dying to see what the inside of my blown out shoulder looks like.

    I think an MTB wreck about 7 years back in Colorado caused an AC seperation, but catching a toe edge on a snowboard this past February did the real damage. I was misdiagnosed at the time so I put off doing anything until after the cycling season. I was told it would be 6 weeks of recovery, so I planned on recovering between biking and snowboarding seasons. Went to UPMC for a final opinion, thats when I got the corrected diagnosis and learned I was looking at 6 MONTHS, not weeks.

    I didn't realize just how vulnerable the shoulders are while mountain biking.
    Seems like everyone I know over 40 has some problems. I went down hard about 4 months ago and can still feel the effects, but fortunately it's my left shoulder.
    The best definition of mountain biking that I've ever heard is," it's just a bunch of guys riding around in the woods and getting hurt".
