I know not many people follow the message board this time of year but some feedback. I missed the Father-Son and WA this year due to shoulder injury and getting ready to have a reverse total shoulder replacement. Has anyone ever had one and how did it go? Thanks, MikeOctober 30, 2019 at 8:58 am #47097
Am one week in from my reverse shoulder replacement. Will be able to start rehab after doctors visit on November 5. My goal is to bust my butt on rehab and be starting to swing in early 2020 and be far enough long to register for early discount. AND definitely have my game in best shape to play. My doctor has told me he will definitely have me higher in backswing than I have in years(may not be able to get a tee out of my back pocket). Have put up with shoulder last 4 years and have lost distance. Looking forward to seeing if I can get it back. Good luck with yoursNovember 6, 2019 at 6:53 pm #47099
Wow, sounds very familiar. My surgery is Dec 11th and I am SO ready. My surgeon says 4 months which would put me swinging a club middle of April. I wish you well in recovery and keep me posted.November 6, 2019 at 8:16 pm #47100
I had a good check up on 5th. X-ray shows everything is where it should be. No pain, basically soreness. Do not have to wear sling around home. Start rehab tomorrow. Shoulder is getting more movement by the hour. Actually ate using the right hand tonight. If your surgery is on your dominant hand, there are some things you really need to practice on. I’ll keep you posted on how I’m progressing and goog luck with yours.November 6, 2019 at 10:23 pm #47101
Yes, it’s my right shoulder and I’m right handed. Been practicing alot.November 14, 2019 at 12:30 am #47102Rick KimbrellParticipant
Glad you two are doing well following your surgeries.
Several weeks before this year’s WA, I had a mucous wart removed from my right hand ring finger. By the time the WA came around, the blasted thing was right back again. This thing prevents me from using the overlap grip I have used for years. Since the WA, I have experimented with every sort of grip you can imagine and the results are all over the place.
Anyway…long story made shorter…I am going this week to hand surgeon to see what he can do. Hell, if he will just cut the blasted finger off right past the first knuckle, I would be happy and in less pain.
As y’all know…getting old ain’t for sissies!!!November 14, 2019 at 9:21 am #47103
Good luck with your finger. Ain’t life an adventure. Maybe they should have a flight this year for those of us who are injured. Have a qualified nurse as well as a bartender with each group.January 9, 2020 at 7:44 pm #47115
11 weeks out and have a tremendous amount of movement in my new shoulder. Not experienced hardly any pain, not even wen therapist says , this may hurt a little. Hardest move is getting right hand to left shoulder. Just got two new stretches to improve that. Can start “strengthening until next week and a little chipping the week after. Should be hitting full shots by end of February. I am tickled xxxxxxxx about my progress..can already see that I can get club higher in my backswing. Already looking forward to this year.
