For those of you that know (or even for those that don’t know), I had a torn rotator cuff.  My surgery was 6 weeks ago.  I’ve been back to work for 4 weeks.   

I was finally allowed to remove the sling on Friday.   My arm still hurts like ____ and physical therapy is sheer torture due to the stiffness of it, but it’s moving along well (at least according to my surgeon and my physical therapist).   I’m right handed … and of course it was my right shoulder … so it’s been entertaining (to say the least) to function left-handed the past 6 weeks.  I still am for that matter as my arm strength and mobility just isn’t there yet. 

I can finally type a little better … so here are my words of wisdom: 

Don’t tear your rotator cuff.
Whatever it is I did, DO NOT DO THAT. 

 At least the surgery went well and in the long run, it’ll be much better than prior to surgery … but still … it’s not something I’d want to do often anyway.  (More rotator cuff blogs from my viewpoint will follow soon.)

So anyway …

Don’t do it. 

Just don’t. 

That is all. 

Carry on.
