I had my left shoulder replaced on Jan. 25th.
I was back on the creek today and I must say for a man with one and a half arms I feel pretty good about myself.
I'm still aways from a double haul, but I taught some trouts a lesson or two.
I still remember my first day on the river a month after my acl surgery. My therapist said I'd be ok to go fishing. So I headed out for a float with two buds. 8 hours later my knee had swollen up to the size of a grapefruit.
I went back to therapy two days later and my therapist was pissed. I told him I just went fishing as we discussed. He asked for how long and was surprised when I told him all day.
His idea of fishing and mine were a little different.
Way to go Gary! I'm happy to hear that your downtime was so short. When I broke my shoulder in'14 I had to have my arm strapped across my belly for the first 6 weeks. It's barely six weeks for you and you are catching fish already! Sounds like I shoulda' gone the Remove and Replace route.
