Ouch. Part 4. The End.

post-surg final oblique croppedMedically cleared.  I believe that’s what my current status is referred to.

Yesterday, I had my final post-surgery office visit after my little crash back in December.

I’m not sure I realized how nice it was going to be to be allowed to raise my arm above shoulder level again!

I’m free and clear to get back to a normal life, with the standard caveat that if I should fall and hit my shoulder again in the next 3-4 months, I’ll almost certainly crack the fracture again.

Bike parts have been arriving for the repairs and I’ve begun installing them.  Depending on weather, I’ll probably attempt my first “real” ride this coming weekend.  We’ll see.  It’s supposed to be pretty wet around here and one of the basic ideas in overcoming post-crash fear is not to go right back to the same conditions at the time of the crash the first time out.

Moving on now.  The crash has been dealt with, basically, and as we’d say in my old business, “we now return you to your regularly scheduled program, already in progress.”
