If this year so far had a theme, it would probably be “meh”. And the reason is: last December I somehow injured my shoulder, so I haven’t been able to do very much activity. First, I did the useless physical therapy. When that didn’t do anything, I got the MRI (note to self: always keep the credit cards far away from the machine to prevent de-magnetization.)
When my regular doctor saw these pictures back in January he said “Huh, I don’t think the bone is supposed to be in that position.” This was not exactly a comforting statement.
So I was scheduled for surgery at the end of February, just before the big annual orthopedic convention. But, I got some sort of bug the day before surgery was scheduled, so it was a no go. My doctor did not learn any new painless techniques at convention, so I got the standard treatment recently.
This is what my shoulder will look like on the inside, except that mine has a new screw in the bone, and the loose bit has been sewed down to this anchor. So in mere six weeks or more I will be as good as new (or as good as Dr. Frankenstein can make me).
