I had been keeping my PL log on PW forum but decided for multiple reasons to move here. Some background:
48 year young female powerlifter
Lift raw and recently single ply
Married with a son, daughter, cat and dog
Recently returned to TN after a short tour in Montogomery AL courtsey of the Air Force
Friday I took a long deep nap and woke up with a new shoulder. Lifting and old tendons gave way so had some labrum cleanup and cut the remainder of my bicep tendon and attached to my humerus. Got lots of neat pictures of the procedure but then kinda got sick to my stomach after looking at them.
Had a inter scalene nerve block so not too much pain afterwards except one very localized spot which morphine took care of. Now pain level is very bearable and itching under bandages has started.
Bandage redressing and 1st PT session tomorrow, haven't decided if I'm looking forward to it or not.
1st post op Dr Appt on Friday morning, but dr told hubby NO powerlifting for 3 months!
