Monday - 6/2/2014

  
Went back to see Dr. Rockett to review my MRI results. As expected, surgery in coming soon. Recovery sounds pretty tedious - 6 weeks in a sling and 6-8 months of rehab/strength recovery.

I had Laurie come with me so we could discuss the pros and cons of various treatment options. Dr. Rockett offered a few options: surgery on Monday, surgery on Tuesday, or Wednesday... This limited the discussion to what to expect afterward. It sounded like the long-term success is dependent on really immobilizing for the first six weeks and taking it slow.

For the curious, I have included a video of the procedure I am having done.
