I'll keep this short and sweet, since you'll be hearing alot from me in coming months. I leave my house in about 30 minutes to head to the hospital for rotator cuff surgery, specifically to repair a full thickness labrum tear as well as a full thickness supraspinatus tear. To ease the strain on the labrum in the future, I'll also be having bicep tenodesis, a procedure in which the long head of bicep is detached from the labrum and anchored to the humerus. I'll be able to start climbing again in 6 months, assuming all goes well.
I figure, why not update regularly on the recovery, since I won't be able to work for a few months? My loss is your gain. Actually, I see it as an upgrade. This shoulder hasn't been right for a while. For years it's been about 20% weaker than the other shoulder. Work just destroys it, and it was a fall on ice at work that finally did it in.
We've got some other big news, of things I've been working on, and we have a review of the great new Bam Board just about ready, so I'll see you all again in a week or so, pecking away left handed at my keyboard,
