Final Rotator Cuff Injury Update, Plus, Colonoscopy and Other Updates is the final update to my Rotator Cuffs Story. It updates all I discussed in my previous update and concludes my rotator cuff injuries story. But here, I am thankful I am recovering slowly but surely from my two shoulder surgeries over the past 1-1/2 years.

Wellness Visit, Heart Disease and Cancer Concerns is a new update on Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Four. I have been telling people for years that my health would deteriorate if I were to stop powerlifting, and that is exactly what is happening after 1-1/2 years of not being able to train at my normal high intensity to prepare for contests.

I just updated the autobiography on my personal website.

Second Post-Surgery Appointment and Continuing Progress is a new update on Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Four. X-rays showed the surgery took, and I am progressing as planned. But it has now been 1-1/2 years since I have had full use of both arms at the same time. It is really getting tiresome. It will probably be sometime next year before I will have full use of my right arm and can stop stressing out over reinjuring it. That stress is even worse than the physical limitations.

One Year Post Left Shoulder Surgery is a new update on Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Four. It has been one year since surgery on my left shoulder. It is almost fully recovered. But I cannot tell for sure due to not being able to engage in full activities due to only being five weeks post-op on my right shoulder. Plus, my adductor is still problematic.

Eat This for That; Don’t Eat This to Avoid That: Part Two is a new article. The media is fond of touting lists of foods or a specific food to improve a particular health situation or of claiming certain foods shouldn’t be eaten to avoid developing a certain health problem.

“Bruise, Rehab and Complaint Letter Updates” is a new update to Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Three. I still have a bruise on my arm from my surgery, but my rehab is going as planned, and I got a response to my complaint letter to the hospital.

Three new updates have been added to Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Three. I sent a complaint letter to the hospital concerning aspects of my recent surgery I was not happy about. I overview my miserable weeks before and post-surgery, and I had several questions for the surgeon at my first post-op appointment.

Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Three is a new page. It discusses my “Rotator Cuff Surgery 2.0,” along with the rough week I had pre-surgery and rough weekend post-surgery.

After much ado, I am finally scheduled for surgery on my right shoulder to fix a rotator cuff tear and other problems in the shoulder on Friday, July 15, 2022. Prayers are appreciated that the surgery and my recovery afterward all go well. For further details, see the latest update: Surgery Scheduled for July 15.

Two new updates to Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Two: “Final Powerlifts Workouts Pre-Surgery, Again” and “Left Adductor Injury.” As I am waiting for approval for my surgery, my training had been going well, until I injured my left adductor (inner thigh) muscle. It is all so frustrating, as I explain the updates.
7/7/22


“Letter to Insurance Company” is the first item on the new page Rotator Cuff Injury 2.0: Part Two. My right shoulder surgery was denied by my insurance company, but I was told I could appeal that decision. This lengthy letter is my appeal.
