The mental part would mess me up. I would be terrified of stepping the wrong way and having it happen again.

Before my doctor got the MRI results on mine he seemed to think it could have been dealt with by doing physical therapy. He couldn't believe how jacked up mine was once he saw the MRI results. I literally worked up until the day of my surgery, lifting heavy material at work, swinging a hammer, and using power tools, so range of motion isn't necessarily a gauge of the injury. Everyone I've talked to has had varying experiences. A injury didn't tear my rotator cuff, it was actually the impingement from arthritis. The cartilage was gone and my bones enlarged and had spurs on them which cut through the rotator cuff over time. So, if you just need a clean-out, GET IT DONE. Don't wait until the tendon is shot. I'm getting an MRI on my left shoulder next week to see what kind of shape the cartilage is in, because I want to avoid having rotator cuff surgery on my other shoulder any way possible. If you only have a slight tear, and no impingement. I would just do physical therapy and not do surgery. Mine was open, rather than orthoscopic, and it hurt like a bastard the first 4 or 5 days.

That is one injury I pray I never have. It has always grossed me out. I'll gladly take this over that any day. I couldn't imagine.

Hell, I haven't been able to scratch the middle of my back in 10 years. Thank God for back scratchers. Lol!

It puts a strain on my financial situation for sure. My wife is finishing up her degree, so we have been living on my income alone for a while now.

Yep. While I am on the DL, I'm going to go ahead and get an MRI on my left shoulder as well, so if there is any impingement I can go ahead and get it cleaned up before it gets to the point where my right shoulder was.

I've decided that it would be in my best interest to switch positions...I'm thinking I am well enough for doggy style. And I will definitely be pitching.

Fuck Pittsburgh. They get everything they deserve. They have kicked a punter in the face, took Carson Palmer's knee out, broken two Bengals players jaws with blind-side hits. They have taken multiple Bengals players out head-hunting, and then they want to cry when Burfict gives them a dose of their own medicine. The only thing Burfict is guilty of is doing it at the wrong moment costing them the game. It's called karma.

I really wish Apple and Bell would have stayed another year. They could have used another year of development and probably got drafted higher. On the flip side, getting drafted lower isn't necessarily a bad thing. You have the opportunity to get on a better team. Plus, there is always that risk of getting injured if they come back, and at least they are getting paid for developing in the NFL.

After about 5 days of sleeping upright, either with pillows or in the recliner, and only getting a few hours a night, I was actually happy to be able to lay flat the last couple of days. Rehab is going great, so hopefully I'll be out of this damn sling soon.

It wasn't too bad. Overall, it went pretty smooth. There were a couple times during the first couple days that were rough.
