It's still not done! I was so sick on Tuesday they couldn't operate. I spent all of yesterday throwing up as well. Now I'm still in Melbs deciding whether to hang around to get it done next week or put it off til after my exams.

Commiserations, Wendy. Were I in your position, having made the decision, I'd stick around and get the patch-up over and done with.
Cheers.

The surgeon tells me it went very well. He had to put 6 anchors in. I react badly to opiods and have been vomiting ever since. 2 days later, pain is ok,so i've stopped opiods but this lefthanded business sux. And how long til you don't have to be so delicate with it? even if i had an office job, i struggle to see i'll be up dor much in 2 weeks. and my typing is going to rival wws for a while

Glad it went well. Pity about the opioid reaction otherwise you could have been pleasantly zonked for the first couple of days.

Rings or Expansions? Polyester or Epoxy?

They gave me phenergan IV when I reacted badly to morphine. Talk about zonked... though not zonked enough to not notice that the nurse was about to wheel my chair over the IV line...

Glad to hear it went well Wendy. I'm sure there's some people on this forum that could give you some tips on the left handed typing.

Hi Wendy

I had similar surgery, but no biceps tendon involvement. I wasn't up for much with the arm for around two weeks, when I wanted to start using it, but didn't. Typing for short periods was ok at four weeks and at six weeks I've just started easy chores like washing up.

All the best.

I had AC joint clavicle resection, acromioplasty and biceps tenodesis last Sat with Dr Jerome Goldberg in Sydney. All (often in combination) classic overuse conditions in a middle-aged climber according to him. He says it went well. Little pain to speak of when the nerve block wore off, but I love morphine so I gave the clicker a work out anyway.

Felt like shit for two days because of the anaesthetic and antibiotics (or maybe the morphine overdose), and I hate wearing a sling (luckily one week only for that). Apart from that all ok. Except statistically I've apparently got a 30% chance of it occurring on the other shoulder.

My MRI report said I had a couple of minor SLAP lesions but Jerome never mentioned this; have to ask him why. They were only a couple of mm so perhaps not big enough to fix.

All the best Wendy. A bit of surfing in sunny south west vic will strengthen that shoulder up and aid the re-hab.

At 3 and 1/2 weeks, my mother just went home today and I'm a semi independent one handed (and very bored and suffering major climbing withdrawls) woman. When does it stop hurting????? I've discovered that sneezing hurts, yawning hurts, being startled by a large spider on the thing you pick up hurts ... not to mention actually trying to do anything. Still, surgeon continues to say it's going well, I can leave the sling off when just sitting around the house and at night. And I've got some happy snaps for anyone who ever wanted to see inside a shoulder.

This is the mess I made of it. That's the long head of the biceps coming in from the top right and all the fluffy stuff is my labrum.

This is one of the anchors going in.

And afterwards. That's the tendon again at the top and you might just be able to see the tie downs. It's basically closer up but the same view as the first one.

Meg says that bone drilling is horribly painful but it should heal well

If you think it hurts now, just wait until you start the rehab exercises! Mine hurt to different degrees on the path to regaining ROM for probably up until at least the year mark, post surgery. If you need to burn off excess energy, your best bet for any kind of exercise will be the stationary bike.

I picked up a second hand exercise bike. It is also very boring but i guess it's something ... and I'm allowed to go for gentle walks. I start physio in 2 weeks with the aim of full ROM by 12 weeks then strengthening exercises. So I guess that's an intensive 6 weeks of pain there. I just hate not knowing when pain is normal and when it means I've done something bad, and I don't want to have to go through all this again! I've heard of 3 cases of needing to have it redone now. Scary. In the meanwhile, I'm watching my right arm waste away. I'm allowed to do "light manual labour" at 3 months. Now, surely climbing grade 8 is extremely light manual labour!

No. When you start thinking that just recite to yourself "I've heard of 3 cases of needing to have it redone".

Lying back in a lounge chair watching someone else work, occasionally pointing out something they've missed. A daiquari may be involved.

Wendy, learn to play the trumpet! Seriously, it only requires one hand, and recent studies show that every genre of music ever discovered is coolified by the addition of tasteful horn lines :)
