Shoulder update

Just got a call from my doctor – the MRI results are in, and I have a small but full thickness tear in my rotator cuff. I suspected it might be the rotator cuff. Now I have to see an orthopod to see if this is going to require surgery or physio or something in between. It sounds stupid, but I’m almost hoping it will be surgery because in my history of pain, physio never fixes anything.

In the mean time, it’s time to dust off my old SafeType keyboard. I hated having to crane around to see the infrequently used non-alpha keys, but being able to type when your arm is in a sling is a major plus when you don’t have sick leave.

  1. As far as I can tell, recovery from shoulder surgery involves spending 75% of your waking hours on Second Life. I’m not sure I’m ready for that.

  2. IME physiotherapists all have the secret agenda of fixing whatever’s still working with your body, and will think all else stems from you not leading their life.
