Last Wednesday I had the tendon surgery that I hdd previously mentioned. This meant that the the upper end of my “lat” muscle was moved so that when I contract it, it will also extenalsly rotate my arm.
Dr Wheel conducted the surgery and he indicated that it all went to plan. They did have to insert a couple of pins for the tendon attachment.
The worst part of the exercise is that I now am in a strange sling with my arm sticking straight out. I need to wear this sling 24/7 fir between 8 and 12 weeks. Sleeping is proving to be a challenge. I am one week down and counting.
I am being very careful with this operation as I am pretty sure this is the last option to get external rotation.
For those interested I am back using One-Hand Keyboard, a great one hand typing program available as an app for Mac or Android. It takes a little getting used to, but once you are up and going it is fantastic.
