I thought you said you need total reconstructive surgery on that shoulder but now you want us to believe that after posting on and off today that sometime in the middle of that you had reconstructive surgery and back home all under 4 hours??

Combo of both actually. Started out as all arthro, but they wound up having to open one incision a little more to fix something. Don't have the exact dewtails yet, but should have pics and video of the whole thing soon, maybe today (covid BS).
Up just now for meds. 1st attempt at laptop jyust now.
Worst part so far was took 7 tries and 4 diff people to get IV started. Anesthesiologist woun up having to come in and do it with ultrasound as a guide, and it took him twice to get it. L-arm is a bloody bruised up mess now from elbow down to hand. BP was soaring after that. pretty sure yomorrow will be worse though. Then arm bloc was supposed to last 3 days, but was wore off before i left recovery. ice machine running full bore tonight! Said i was really hard to put out too. Got a fat lip too somehow...tape from getting tubed i think, that or the tool.
overall everyone seemed pretty positve about the fix though. Doc is one of the CO Rockies team orthos for shoulders. Glad about that.
First time upright since leavin OR just now. probably should cut this short now and head back to 'the chair'. Look like a spaceman with all the water lines hooked up, can't hardly move then. had to get up and move around for a bit.
