    Rotator Cuff Surgery

    Friday afternoon I`m having rotator cuff surgery. This past Sunday morning I did my last Ocean swim . It was great,..I swam a mile at a snails pace,..the chop,.. the taste of the salt water,. the view of the cliffs and coast,..the smell of the sea breeze, the glare of the Sun,..the wind,..the view of the depths, the kelp, cool water,..what a blessing the Ocean is.

    I`m looking forward !

    good luck ron.
    i had a torn labrum repaired about 10 years ago.... it took a few months to get back into the swing of things.

    the water will be waiting for you.

    Re: Rotator Cuff Surgery

    Today , I got back in the water,..not the Ocean, the pool. I wore a sling that has a waist strap that keeps the arm from drifting away from my core. I tucked my thumb inside my speedo....10 laps kicking while wearing a snorkel. The doc. said it was ok,.just don`t lift or rotate the left arm. It felt great.

    Life is grand
