as it turns out, my ebiking year is just about over. shoulder surgery is scheduled for next thursday.Hyena wrote: a little early for a year in review isn't it ?
i've put it off long enough (7 years?) and it's just progressively gotten worse to the point that i wake up through the night w/ shoulder pain. i've got labral tears in both shoulders. i couldn't decide which to do first but i've finally decided on the left. and if it goes well i'll eventually have the right done.
i'm gonna ask doc for the video of the procedure. there are plenty on youtube, but i think it'd be fun to have my own up on gravitydreaming
i've heard this surgery has the longest recovery time because it's all cartilage and ligaments and that stuff takes forever to heal since blood flow is more limited. so any fall in the first 4 months will likely mean another surgery.
so what does this mean for biking?
of course the impact on family life is gonna be a bigger bummer. no sledding. no ebike towing sleds. no rough housing. and a thousand other routine tasks...
in the meantime, i just found a sweet spot for jumps! gonna check it out on the way home this afternoon. maybe having the surgery scheduled is a good reason to try something retarded!
