Matabele,

My Dr said I should expect to be OK for "Light" duties after two or three weeks. So I'll have to trust that's the way it will go, although I'm not sure what "Light" duties I can do as a Maintenance Fitter.

I guess this is where my life moto kicks in, "Do the best you can, with what you have, at the time".

I'll try to give a few updates as we progress.

Best
Lex

I have tears in both shoulders. Eight months ago I started training kettlebell as my primary method of resistance training. It is no longer painful to shoot my bow, and I am more accurate now than I have been in years. I can't say that it's the right thing for everyone, but it certainly helped me and I didn't have to have surgery.

I had my left shoulder (bow arm) worked on a couple of years ago. The labrum was torn but not the rotator cuff. It went well, although I did not quite recover full strength (am at about 95%, though). It did not take long to get back to shooting my hunting bows. However, I still can't shoot my favorite bow which is 65# at 28".

Now, my other shoulder is feeling just like my left shoulder did. Essentially, I can't bow hunt effectively, because it hurts to draw and hold the bow steady. Practicing is excruciating at times. Even laying off for up to 3 weeks at a time does not help, which is why I don't think it is just muscle fatigue and strain.

I have a medical appointment coming up, and if the doc thinks I need to be cut again, I will not hesitate to do so. I went from 0% efficiency to about 95%, a most acceptable outcome.
