Well today is the last day to wear my sling after shoulder surgery. 6 weeks. Doubt if I should go out and play baseball but may take the wife out to dinner! Hopefully will be doing gun lifts soon! Birdtracker

Forget about baseball. Gun lifts ... get a Terry Jordan wall chart. Make sure you keep doing your therapy as instructed. Good luck. Bill Malcolm

Bill: I have had a wall chart for about 2 years. I knew after I got hurt it was gonna tell me when I was ready to shoot again. Don

Don,

Congratulations on getting rid of that sling.

That is certainly a milestone.

I have only had mine 13 days and I am already sick of it.

Enjoy getting back into shooting.

I really appreciate the guidance you have offered me.

Take good care of yourself

Big Don : If I am able to shoot by the Grand it will be a miracle. My Dr has said 6 monthes to a year before lifting. I thought about scoring at Middletown and Marengo but I think Illinois is to far as of now. Take care. Don

birdtracker,
What kind of surgery did you have? June 23 I fell and fractured my shoulder socket, dislocated my should rear ward (only 5% go that way) tore the cartilage in the socket and completely ripped the rotator cuff attachment off the humerus.
Had surgery on July 1st (5 hours) Now have 2 screws and 5 clips in my humerus.
In a sling for 6 weeks. Did PT for 6 weeks. Continue to this day on my own. I have regained 100% movement in my shoulder. Still a little pain all the time, just enough to know it is there, but I can live with that. The big thing I know is that I do not have the strength in it, but it is comming back with the PT. The big rubber bands I think do the most to regain my strength. Luckily I am a right hander shooter and I did the damage to my left shoulder. Have lifted my gun and am pretty sure come March I will be able to shoot. Maybe only 100 but that is a start.
Do your PT and good luck.

Big Don: I better see you at Middletown for the Mid American with Pat!

Recurvy: I am totally bummed out right now. I have loaded at least 2,000 shells and can't shoot them. Don't let my son find out!

Mike: well I tore my bicep loose at the top, damage 2 rotator muscles and tore my labrium. Doc said since I did such a good job he would throw in the cleaning up of the arthritis and calcium deposits. What a guy! I hope you have a speedy recovery and can shoot again this summer. Rehab is long and slow on shoulders. Don
