    As an aspiring occupational therapist (if I get into grad school I will be one!) I've been learning a lot about orthopedic surgeons and the crazy things they recommend. If it looks like Tom needs more surgery, I've got a great OT to recommend to visit for a second opinion (she's in Seattle). Surgeons like to cut, but sometimes all the patient needs is some structural integration to get things working again.

Having gone through four shoulder surgeries myself (way too much baseball), I completely understand what he is going through. Take care and best wishes for a speedy recovery.
    No new slings, but Tom has concluded that he will perform his next shoulder surgery himself.

    The most important is that you and Tom take the time to heal properly so that you both get back to using those shoulders 100% and don't hurt any longer.

    I took a bad smack from the ocean, stupidly tried to bodysurf a tall wave in short water. Right now, the pain is mild, and dissipating. I've never been so happy to get ER treatment After 5 weeks, I was well enough to carry 4 bags to the airport (incl. Tri-Star and Aeronaut), trying not to get cocky and therefore regress.

    Tom's is a lot harder to get over -- actual surgery, rather than just getting parts yanked back into alignment

    Best wishes ... selfishly, everyone benefits when Tom's arms are working

    It is good to see that Tom is smiling despite the sling and the discomfort.

    More Healing Thoughts your way, Tom.

    Once healed, you will appreciate your own products even more. I have both back and shoulder problems and your bags are the only ones that I can carry comfortably, even when fully loaded. Wishing you a speedy recovery!
