Under the knife

Post by Westbone on Sat Jan 14, 2012 11:58 pm

Been back in the UK a few days.
Going under the knife at 10.20 am. today. Only taken almost 2 years to get this far. Must get this damn shoulder fixed.

Sorry to hear Damian, but, it'll be better afterwards no doubt, eh?
All the best to you mate.

Geez it's like the Westone Infirmary in here lately...maybe we need to start a Spares section dedicated to sundry body parts.

In and out in an hour and a half. Keyhole surgery as they call it.

Thank you for the kind comments.

I hear that these Westone Prestiges can be a bit heavy for an older gent with a shoulder affliction, if you follow the line that I am beginning to unreel?

Any guitar for longer than 10 mins. for the last 2 years feels like an anvil.
A bass is the worst with the neck being longer. It's the stretching bit that's a killer.
So be it a Prestige or a super light Strat, makes no difference both are staying, sorry chaps nice try.. Laughing

There's 2 tendons which were injured, now these are rubbing against each other and both are inflamed. Every movement just causes them to rub even more. With a bit shaved off, well, see how it goes.
As for painkillers sarc. never touch them unless in absolute agony.

Well they wouldn't do a procedure without a good chance of betterment, so good on ya for having it done. Make sure you follow post-op procedures so it can heal up right. Here's to pain free and full recovery Damian!

Here we go again, had surgery on my right shoulder yesterday to take a "large spur" off the collar bone and file off the end of the bone (arthritic) to stop its jagged bits snagging the tendons. Painkillers are interesting (synthetic opioid). Strumming over for a while.

Sorry for your pain Greg. Hope all gets back to a pain free normal, fast!

Arthritis is a bloody misery. I was doing a lot of yard work today and as I write a few of my finger joints are throbbing like a teenage boy on a hot date... What a Face
...but not in a good way. Neutral

Courage mon brave!

That's some major carving there Damian! Did they at least gave you the wish bone?

Hope you're finally feeling the benefit of it all.
All the best!

Sux to get old
