Professer Hopf. Trier Germany. 2012

The head of the humerus was broken into 12 pieces. The neck of the humerus was broken in 2 places....

I still have that titanium plate and all the screws. No problem. 98% rotation. PT was hot yoga and swimming.

No pain, no gain.....

Satbob, I am a little over two weeks out and am shocked at how well things are going, I slept in bed last night without the sling and got 6-7 hours. When we saw Dr. Barnard on Monday, two weeks post op, he said "wait till you come back in four weeks, you are going to be thrilled". I already am! Best of luck to the Mrs. too.

Wow. That pic looks like when my 9yo got the screw gun and "fixed" the gate. WINNER!

Went to er yesterday. The shoulder was x rayed. I suggested a torn rotator cuff but the film shows very little cartilage in the joint. Next week is the ortho.

Good luck at the ortho. At (y)our age, there's probably a bone spur or two in the mix. Missing cartilage is common as well (both my shoulders) at this age. Stem cell treatments might be feasible now to alleviate some of that.

MRI is much better than X-ray at examining soft tissue. You'll probably be sent for one (or at least should be). Dr. Woodward said the MRI is usually a good guide, but there's nothing better than the arthroscopic camera; once he gets that inside, he can find and fix other issues as well. So it was with my torn labrum. Hope all goes well. Keep it iced and barely mobile until the exam.

Good luck, indeed at the ortho. I'm starting to feel quite lucky that I merely had a torn rotator cuff with bone spur that had done much of the cutting.
