One (Week) Down

Week 1 post op has gone well. Starting with basically no mobility beyond the fingers last Thursday, I now have full range of motion in my wrist, along with forearm pronation and supination. I was able to get my elbow around for the "handshake position" by Monday and I do 20 minutes of static resistance in this position three times every day.

Beyond rehab, I've managed to carry light objects, do up my fly, squeeze a tube of facial scrub, and give my dog a head scritch.

I have been resting, reclining, eating healthy and getting lots of fresh air when I'm not doing exercises. I've drunk a lot of milk, along with protein powder although I don't think the "Repair and Recover" motto on the tub of WPC specifically had shoulder cartilage in mind.
