No Surgery!!!!!!!!! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaw!

At least it's not likely! My shoulder is stable, but I have arthritis on the distal end of the collarbone and an inflamed Upper Biceps tendon. The symptoms were duplicating the symptoms of a blown Rotator Cuff! 4-6 weeks of PT and we'll reassess, but it looks good! I can even start riding again next week for easy rides

This is great news Tom! I will be able to start riding at the end of next week too (instead of the 26th). Make sure you follow through with the PT and do not push too hard.

Cool news... but listen to the doctors. Let it heal before you start riding again. I know I sound just like a mom... sorry. Just take care.

So it was nothing all along? Hum... I am going back to my original comment, "Big Sissy." Now get out there and start pushing some pedals.

Just Kidding. Glad to hear all is getting better. Hope you continue with your speedy recovery.

No, it's not nothing......but at least it isn't nearly as bad as it could have been. My shoulder will be degenerating as time goes on and I have to accelerate some goals if I want be able to do them.

Escaping the knife is always good. Take a good look at your blog. I have no doubt in my mind that you will be able to accomplish any and all goals you set. You sir, are a true inspiration. Keep it up.

Hmmm. So this is likely to happen again if it's a tendon injury and arthritis. I can see how the fall caused the tendon injury (which should eventually heal, right? Although it will take time), but how did the fall affect the arthritis? Had you been having some shoulder pain for a while?
