same, i am no doctor, so no medical advice. only a wish for you, a successful surgery and may the shoulder heal well and make your badminton all the more enjoyable. as for the absent, hopefully you will still be around even if you have to type with one hand. take it easy and rest well

Hope you get better soon...and who knows, the one handed typing may increase your typing speed once your arm gets better

On my first caving expedition, someone dislocated his knee by slipping on a wet tent groundsheet! Thankfully it was at surface camp, not an underground camp. I splinted it, we called for a helicopter, and that was the end of his expedition.

Good luck, Gollum. Here's to a speedy recovery (raises mug o' beer)

ever think of getting the oxygen cube? you stay inside/sleep for few hours a day in a cube filled pure oxygen. this will help you recover much faster.
may the force be with you.....

Just a note on physio, when I re-injured my back, I went to my physiotherapist. This time, it really hurt like hell, but I kept telling myself to just take the pain and keep doing the exercises. At time, it's very discouraging, but I don't think you'll ahve much pain other than from the surgery. But just remember to so the exercises everyday...even if you are very busy, at least do them once a day. Also, with physio, when you do certain exercises, it may hurt...that's normal, BUT, the pain should go away almost immediately. If the pain is increasing after certain exercises or the increased pain does not go away, STOP doing it and talk to your physiotherapist about it.
It took me 2-3 months before I was confortable "going all out" when playing badminton.

Swift recovery Gollum, we're gonna miss your 'pearls of wisdom' for a quite while.

I just read the news. Good luck on the surgery and physio, Gollum.

swift recovery to you gollum...
advice? umm... after having surgery, don't think of your shoulder too much...because the more you move and try too see if the operation really worked, that more it stresses the parts that have been repaired...

I've had good experience with physio.
Physio (when done right) may feel uncomfortable, but it's a short term discomfort for long term gain. I found out the hard way that coddling an injury makes full recovery harder and prolongs the recovery period, too. Pushing yourself a bit by doing physio helps the new tissue grow healthy and, in my experience, this reduces the risk of reinjury.
So, my advice... listen to your doc and to your physiotherapist, too!
Good luck with your surgery, and have a speedy recovery! I hope you'll find lots to keep busy so you won't miss being on the court too much.

Just wishing you a speedy recovery Gollum.
Maybe just the right time for you to take in more rests and contemplate on what you wish to do next.

Well, I've had the surgery.
They discovered that 3/4 of my labrum was detached from the glenoid (from six o'clock to 3 o'clock, as the surgeon described it). So my shoulder was fundamentally unstable!
I'll wear a sling 24 hours a day for four weeks, before the physio starts.

nice to hear the surgery went well!
I whish you a speedy recovery!
(and I understand you're not going to reply to this..the one handed typing and all...)

Wonder how long it took Gollum to type up that post-op message ...
Speedy recovery, Gollum.
