I’m back. Two weeks ago I had a full shoulder reconstruction done and I am slowly recovering. I had a bad fall before Christmas and dislocated my shoulder and in doing so managed to do an impact fracture of the head of my humerous bone, break the corner of the glenoid bone, tear all the cartilage around the shoulder socket and snap two tendons plus tear all the ligaments and muscles. So the surgeon had to do a lot of filing, screwing, putting anchors and pins in, sewing things back together and rather major repairs in the shoulder. I have to wear a sling for the next six weeks including at night time which straps my elbow to my side and completely immobilises my arm. And of course it would be my right shoulder and I’m right handed.
And now to top it off I have developed an abscess in the side of my boob as my arm is permanently strapped to my side and the chafing caused a sore which then got infected. Life with no working legs and now only one hand is getting increasingly difficult. I am so looking forward to getting my hand back. But thank goodness for dictation software on my computer as at least I am able to post this
So life is more difficult than usual at present. And I am just a wee bit fed up.
OK, whinge over,
