Well, getting surgery....
I'm getting an open right bankart repair and a right coracoid orif done on tuesday. this is a result of my little spill at blackhawk last month. (dislocated my shoulder.)
kind of pissed because i'm starting to get alot of range of motion back and i would have probably been able to make blackhawk this month, but i guess it will be better to get it done now rather than later.
dr goldberg (the orthopedic surgeon, specialized in shoulders and elbows, apparently does about 2 shoulders a week) says if i don't get it fixed, there is a 60% chance it will dislocate again. if i get it fixed, 98% chance it will good as new. as a "bonus" he's going to do the coracoid fracture. i guess they usually don't worry about those, but since mine is displaced and he's doing an open bankart anyway... he says it will only be an extra 15 minutes so might as well fix it. there is also a fragment with no appearent origin, so he's going to check that out too.
anyone ever have any exp with one of these?
