Well I finally had the MRI (in the time-tunnel) scan last week & they've called me in for an operation tomorrow (Fri) so, if i'm still around from Sat onwards, then it will have been some sort of success, if not, then its been nice knowing you all!!
I've been pretty well useless for nearly a year after pulling the big trailer on the drive & did a lot of shoulder/tendon damage, so watch this space!!

Mate - wishing you the best of Luck.  We missed you at MCR7 - everyone thought I was you for a while!!!!  The bikes always seem to speak for themselves....

Good luck - its the recovery thats the worst. if you need it I'll donate a trolley jack and a few 12v motors for the bionics :-)

I thought he was already bionic! You mean he was like that naturally!?! :)

Woke up 2/12 hours later, felt absolutely fantastic, not a hint of pain, chatting to the other 'inmates', thinking to myself, 'this is great, no problems with this at all'!!
Then at 0230 I felt a 'twinge', 0235, it hurt, 0240 ouch, 0250     AAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!
Shouting & hollering that much, that I went into some sort of shock, cold & sweaty, hard, fast breathing etc. blood pressure down to 90!! they came & stabbed with morphine!! but it STILL hurt like feck.
Some sort of normality by 10.00, & by 1300, they sent me home!!
Arm like a tree-trunk, fingers like sausages, could'nt move at all, solid, just 'twiddle' the sausages!
Then Jackie found this on youtube, this is what I had, if i'd seen this first, there'res NO WAY I'd have gone in!

Sorry to hear about the pain; there should be no need to suffer.

Aint the internet great though? Imagine trying to get hold of, and then WATCH a film of someone having a shoulder operation "back in the day"?
Parent - By timo Date 19-05-2009 17:01
Good to hear that it is getting better.  Hope everything is back to normal soon.
Parent - By bolt-on-billy Date 20-05-2009 08:24
