Almost four weeks post op...feels pretty bullet wound still...like maybe 10% use of the shoulder...forearm is good w/almost complete movement of elbow, wrist, and fingers. Shoulder is very limited movement w/a fair amount of constant pain. Two more weeks in the sling still.  Looks like my PT starts after I'm out of the thing. Been walking alot. Tried playing my ukulele today, 5 mins in and had to ditch it. Too painful. Been hittin' the keys.
  Getting a bit antsy not being able to drive. Lucky I have my wife and my sister helping out.
Got a hold of a cryo-cuff from a buddy. Helps alot w/icing after my in-home PT of forearm, elbow, wrist, and fingers..

no problems with the size or weight of a regular sized GoPro while surfing with any of the mounts. My Hero 5 Black works great.
The Hero5 is no housing. Would imagine it's a better feel on paddle mount. Paddle mount is my fav pov with an older GP. Those new 360 degree view povs are super sweet looking.

Difference between the Session5 and my Hero3 Silver is way noticeable on paddle mount. Alot more swing weight with the Hero3. Both still function real well although I haven't used them in a while now.

Better not lose my Session! Lost my second one last winter (RMA from my orig Session5) on a botched late drop on a NICE wave! Replaced it right away so I'm on my third one now.

Looks like they're all out at B & H!

Bunch of em on eBay.

GL locating one, Beasho. Every surfer should own a GoPro.

Wow! You guys are super dialed and stoked on the Teslas. I saw the Cyber truck on the news the other day and just stumbled on this same article you posted, Tom.

https://cleantechnica.com/2019/11/27/the-tesla-cybertruck-isnt-a-pickup-its-much-much-more/

750,000 miles and maybe even 1,000,000! Incredible vehicle and as someone who first thought the Honda Element was the worst looking vehicle ever and ended up buying one, I almost instantly though the same of the Cybertruck. After reading this article I'm sold.
But can you put racks on it?!

Now comes the tedious part. The physical therapy. Do you when your therapy starts?
In a few weeks. Already started minimal movement exercise w/forearm, wrist, and fingers...shoulder needs more time.

Does anyone else find this x-ray humerus? ;D ;D ;D

Ha ha! My PT already used that one on me!  That really tickles my funny bone.  :P

Two weeks post surgery and the surgical staples are out. 19 of em. Still feels like a bullet wound. Bit of a bleeder on one of those staple extractions, right down my chest. That was a bit unnerving! Gonna be a long road ahead before a paddle is in my grip. No prob, waiting it out patiently.

New parts-

eastie- Not quite home yet. This is my 10th day staying at home. Been lucky to be able to take it easy. Movement is SO limited, weak, and painful. I take my arm outa "Super Sling" 3 or 4 times a day and exercise the arm a bit. Elbow, wrist, and fingers only. Monday staples out! That will be nice.
This feels like a train wreck...or maybe gunshot wound!

My cat keeps me good company.

Nice on the weight, Creek. Unfortunately I'm sitting on four surf sups here.  Ot only do I not have room to store a beautiful board like that but my wife would not be pleased with me ordering another board. But I appreciate your offer and LOL with your Sidelines comment.

Another quality Creek video.That board looks unreal. Is it difficult to lift onto roof racks?
 I would love to order a Point Break! Funny that I'm still considering new boards in my state of disrepair!

How old is that board? Are you the orig owner?
I had my 1st PSH Ripper delam after acoupla years. Right where my front foot went and the delam took on water and migrated into a fairly large round shape after a while. That was one ugly repair. Had to remove like 90% of the padding. !

 Interesting day here yesterday right from the start. First the toilet and tub backed up and there was no way we were getting it unclogged on our own so I had to call a plumber. So while waiting for the plumber I finally had to go to the bathroom and the number two kind which had been four days since I last went due to the anesthesia and pain meds. So I called my sister and she gave me the code to one of her property's she manages right here on the ocean a block away, but the garage door opener seem to have a dead battery and it wouldn't work after 5 tries. So there's a porta-potty like two lots away at a construction site but there was a whole huge pile of lumber in front of it and I couldn't get the door open wide enough to get my super sling through it so I ended up running over to a friend's house and using her bathroom just in the nick of time.
  So the plumber finally showed up and had to remove the toilet and run a hundred foot snake through the line twice which cleared out a crap ton of roots. Then he had to retrofit a new flange on there since the old one was totally rusted out which didn't surprise me since it was 15 years old, put a new waxy o-ring on, and reinstall the toilet. So $600 later we're back in business. I did all this before a visit from a surfing buddy around noon which was definitely the nicer part of the day.
 
Day 5....Gnarly bruise developed.

Nice glassy solo session. That bite Mount POV ain't bad but I found it to be one of the most uncomfortable things ever.

72 hours post-op and the pain is still pretty brutal. At first I was 10 mg of oxy every 4 hours but now I've reduced it to every 7 hours. I'm hoping that I'll be able to cut it out altogether in a day or two because this stuff makes you Looney. It feels like a cross between a bullet and a knife in my shoulder at present. I do manage to get some okay rest after taking an oxy though
I appreciate the lengthy detailed description of your rehab Nightwing. You are truly a rehab hero and I will try to draw inspiration from your experience.
Bean, we still have to do that Inlet Crossing.

Thanx, Zoners.
Seeya on the other side, Creek.
This set's gonna be a doozy, TD.
Thanx for the info regarding the post[op experience, NW. Been quite curious about that.
