Well the surgery was a success and the doctors reckon I will get 100% movement back in my shoulder and arm. Started 2nd round of Physio this week. Have made some improvements since last week. I have about 35 degrees of movement forward in my arm. I can now bend it at the elbow without too much pain or difficulty. The Pysio, Tony, has given me some exercises...


Surgery Done And Dusted!

Well the surgery has been done and my collar is back in place, well most of it anyway. The surgeon had to cut a little bit off the end of it to get it back into place and has tied it in place with some special tape they put around bones. Only thing I know now is that it hurts just as much as when I first did it!!!! Sucking down the pain...

Well I have had about 8 X-rays, a CT scan, spent a total of about 9 Ĺ hrs at the hospital and they still donít know what they are going to do with me!!!
