Bummer. Good you're getting it fixed right, but shitty being on the shelf. Wishing the best, Tollhouse will be prime when you're ready to rehab.

Dwain-

Bad news, bro! I was really looking forward to finally getting to climb with you during Facelift. Get it fixed "right" this time, and keep up on the PT as Ron suggests (insists?). Maybe there'll be another Spring JT fundraiser and we can climb then?

A great attitude is one of the great healers, and you've got that.
You know we'll all be pulling for you.

Yeah Bruce Looks like I fuked myself up a month after my first surgery when I tripped and fell.
I really didn't know for sure till about a month or so ago when I wasn't getting my strength back and It was aching and still popping all the time when I moved it.
I found out for sure Yesterday after the doc told me the results of the MRI I had done last Thursday.

One operation leads to another, leads to another, leads to another . . . It's a slippery slope that I've managed to avoid by using this magic formula: seek a second opinion and tell the surgeon, No! Took 3 years of absolutely brutal weight lifting but my shoulder is getting real close to back to normal. Just took a long, long time plus laziness staying off it. Don't ask me my opinion about the pandemic of shoulder, back, hip and knee operations and I won't repeat my rant.

Bruce;
I did get a second opinion.
DR said the same thing,
I MESSED up the first surgery when I tripped and fell
a month after the surgery and ripped the supraspinitus.

Lord knows I don't want to get another surgery, but it is interfering with my business and my climbing.

It's my own dam fault I tripped on a crack in the sidewalk!

As much as I dislike the whole surgery 'culture', a catastrophic tear of the supraspinitus does require surgery if you want it to heal up again. If it's torn clean through, there's no other way. It just won't fix itself. However, all the surgeries that are done to repair partial tears of the supraspinitus tendon (IMHO) are just expensive quick fixes to stop the pain quickly, but do not necessarily correct the underlying problem. MRIs are always subject to interpretation according to the skill and experience of the interpreter, but a full range of motion study doesn't lie. If you can't hold your arm out in front of you at 90 degrees, the dang thing is torn clean through and has to be stitched together to heal properly. Just won't do it on its own.

Best of luck with your 'Trois'!

bruce you would have dug my re-encapsulation and bankart w/cuff tear and slap ligs (2nd time for them, 2 new anchors as the old ones were unusable...) - no effin way that was going on its own...

cosmic where was the crack in the sidewalk ? you should lawyer up and see what happens ;-)
