A few weeks ago I posted a question about shooting following shoulder surgery for a torn rotator cuff. Your many responses were helpful. Thank you all. Well, the day has arrived. I'm scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Have gathered as much info as I can and am optimistic that the outcome will be good....at least good enough. A friend and fellow shooter who is also a doctor tells me that the shoulder will not be the same, but the key is regaining as much range of motion as possible.....and eliminating the pain, which at present is considerable and constant. Wish me luck and I'll post progress reports.
