Had my first PT session last night post surgery and despite the discomfort, it was fantastic. I don’t know what the numbers mean exactly, but in measuring my range of motion at the beginning of the session and again at the end, I increased my range by 20 degrees! This morning, I could actually raise my right hand to my head and use it to wash and brush my hair. These activities have been a strictly one-handed task until this morning. Progress!
Before PT last night, I was finding it very difficult to imagine surfing again within 8 – 10 weeks. Now, I can see that it might be possible. Don’t get me wrong, there is still quite a bit of pain and I am still not using the right arm much, but it is better.
