I did it....

I had shoulder surgery Tuesday afternoon. The MRI had shown that the tendon was really thin so it was time to do something about it. And I am glad I did. The bone spur had shredded the tendon and I was lucky that I wasn't skiing or doing something and the tendon ripped in two. So the bone spur was removed, work was done to regenerate the tendon and I believe there was some bone shaved off the end of my back shoulder too.

So I am sore and not much knitting has been going on. The pain pump came out this morning, I finally could take a shower, and I picked up some knitting because I need to use my arm. So there has been some slow knitting going on, but I am knitting. I have been knitting with an ice pack on my shoulder. I get my stitches out in the first part of October and there will be some work to get this shoulder in shape, but I have hope it will be better than ever. And ready for ski season :)

And hopefully pain free...

I'm glad to hear that you got your shoulder taken care of and that you're working your way back to knitting again. Hope you can make it to the next Bohus group. Keep in touch!

Hoping that the shoulder is on the mend and you can continue that great knitting you do. Take care.
