Shoulder surgery is a big deal. You’re in a brace, you can’t use it for weeks, it needs physical therapy when the healing is done.
There’s really only three words at the beginning of recovery: Don’t Use It.
So, this is partially my fault, because I picked an inconvenient time to have a Vertigo attack that a couple of doctors thought might be a stroke. When they let me out of the hospital after keeping me overnight, the therapist mentioned to Virginia that she should not be driving in a brace as it’s a liability issue.
So, she took the brace off.
I needed some medication, so she decided to go pick it up. Since she was out, she decided to pick up a few things at the store.
This with her recently repaired arm out of the sling.
Her physical therapist was amazed by the change in motion when I took her for therapy. No, not amazed. Horrified.
The doctor said she hadn’t actually reinjured it, but to knock it off.
