In-Depth Details About the Shoulder Surgery, Part Four: Follow-up

Thanks again for all the kind words before and after the surgery.

I saw my surgeon yesterday and he said I'll have to let the repair heal for 4-6 months while doing rehab. So no sports for me until mid summer. But he did clear me for jogging so at least I won't get totally fat and out of shape.

For at least the next four weeks (when I see the surgeon again), and perhaps for the next few months, I'm not supposed to raise my arm past shoulder height.

And I don't know how gross/not gross this will be, but if you're up for it, you can view pictures from inside my shoulder taken during the surgery! Cool stuff!

Oh, and another bonus - apparently women just can't resist a guy in a sling. Who knew?!
