____ Surgery at the Pan-Am Clinic was performed on December 1st; left shoulder arthroscopy, where three small entry points were made and the broken bone from the rotator cuff was re-attached. My left arm has been in a sling for three weeks and the pain has only just started to ease; pain-killers have helped but sleeping has been very difficult. I was given a Cold Rush machine which pumps icy water through a pad that is strapped around the shoulder; during this treatment has been the only time
I have felt comfortable.
____ I went back to the clinic yesterday and they seemed pleased with their handiwork. They do know their stuff and are confident that I will make a full recovery. I hope so because at the moment I feel weak and wasted. I've been sitting about watching Netflix for two months. Lets hope the physiotherapy can get me up and about; out and about; anywhere away from the couch. Onward into 2015.
____All the best to everyone in 2015, Chris Arbon.
