Well just back from the Doc.
Yes, I reinjured my rotator Cuff
and I go in for Surgery on the 20th of Sept to get it fixed.

This tim the Doc says he may have to open me up rather than do it Arthro-
scopically to fix it.

OUCH!!!!!

Darn, Cosmic, you might as well move in with yer surgeon - you've already
paid for at least a bedroom and a bathroom!

Hopefully the third time's the charm! :-)

Reilly;
Part one was for my Hernia Surgery a year and a half ago.
Part 2 and 3 are for my shoulder, so I hope the second time is the charm!

Dam! I'm a KLUTZ on flat ground

That sucks bigtime Cosmic! Looks like I might be done early this year if you need a ringer in the fall to help out.

Hey there Cosmic.
My wife's been through much the same. First arthro, then nearly a year later open surgery. She's much better now, still has to be careful. She keeps herself fit at the gym and with yoga.
Good luck to you!

That full on sucks dirty balls brother..

I remember Pagen and I going to climb King Fisher - first 20 feet of the hike and he slips and falls on his bad surgically repaired shoulder....jeepers...



My arm feels real good - trying real hard not to mess it up in anyway as it is not really healed for at least a few months. Had a small trip at a concert last night......f*#k..

We sure are Clumsy on Flat ground, eh my FRIEND?

When I tripped and fell, it's too bad I didn't land on my head instead of my shoulder, I wouldn't have got hurt if I had landed on my head!
There's NOTHING there to INJURE!!!

Yeah Ron.
I was starting to feel the same way about a month and a half ago when it seemed like I wasn't getting my strength back.
5 months post-op and I still can't lift a milk jug past horizontal
with a straight arm. I can lift it up to almost horizontal,
and past that, extream pain.
I have full mobility, just NO strength.

I wish I could Puff Puff, and my supraspinitus would reattach itself, Tami.
But the puff puff is for pain and not healing.

:(


I guess I am going to have to stock up on new Manips
Cause after the surgery my Manipulating arm is going to be immobile for a month or so.

My Right arm can't manipiulate worth S#IT!!!!

Cosmic, good talking to you today! We'll stay in touch after the repair part tw#t, uhhhhhh trios. Work hard as we talked at getting the surrounding muscles in killer shape prior to the tw#t surgery.
Peace

if you can't make the Peter Gabriel gig, I'll take tickets as payment for services so far rendered! Just kidding, I KNOW you'd never miss one of those.
