One year after the surgery

One year ago I had surgery on my shoulder. The incision is healed and I did twice the amount of PT that my insurance allowed.

I’m pretty sure this was a bad decision.

I’m still weak in this shoulder. I have pain regularly in my shoulder, collarbone area and bicep area. I have not been able to resume yoga. I can hold a down dog for a limited time, chatarunga is totally out of my abilities at this time. I did some hiking and attempted a single backpacking trip overnight and was exhausted by the time I got back.

But I won’t give up.

I’ll keep trying very, very small doses of yoga and pushing my arm to get stronger and dealing with pain and drinking my double Old Fashions to help me sleep.

I never ever want to have surgery again.
