    Well I guess its surgery time, although were going to try Physical Therapy for a month to see if it helps

    Im guessing Ill be out at least 10months before being able to lift anything

    Sorry to hear it, but with any luck you wont need surgery.

    Just don't start lifting before your PT says it's ok to.

    Absence of pain doesn't mean you're out of the woods.

    Ive been doing my own kinda of physical thearpy and I told my ortho what I had been doing and he said its prob pretty similar to what Ill be doing in PT.

    I love it when they start messing with your shoulder and it pops outta place and there like does that hurt Im like me saying fuck really loud wasnt a sign that it hurt?

    Something about the profession makes you a bit of a sadist.

    Usually they stick a flat needle in 3 of your nerves with a blocker to make your entire arm/etc numb, it sends out electronic pulses so they know if they are in the right spot. I nearly put a hole in the wall when they did it to me because it makes your muscles contract.

    I think they do one than because he was saying they put something in your shoulder that last for awhile to make your arm go numb while in surgery. So it should be painless he said afterward
