I had a complete tear of the libram tissue, and a partial tear of the rotator cuff. He left the rotator alone, and only choose to fix the Librum. He said the rotator wasn't significant enought to warrent a repair, and that it should mend on its own. The librum was another story. Here is a series of before shots showing the extent of the tear. Check out the two upper left shots, Now i can see why i was in so much pain:
Here are some frames where he is actually sewing up the muscle. He ran our of surgical thread and had to use some downhaul line i always keep in my back pocket. hehehehehe
And here is the final sequence of shots showing the muscle completely sewn back up:
Its been a painfull few days since the surgery. I didn't sleep at all the first night, but each subsequent night has gotten better and better. I'm supposed to stay off the water for 2-3 months, and thats a tough pill to swallow. However its been made a little bit easier by the fact that my new gear will be arriving some time in late march, so I have a lot to look forward too.
But theres no cheatin on this one, this was a major repair. Here is a video link to Labrum repair. and i'm officially in dry-dock until at least late march. Time to work on my cardio capacity.
