And on the bright side, at least it's not my dominant hand. How was the surgery and recovery??
Mine was my left shoulder and I'm right handed. I was only in a sling for about a week. The first few days after surgery were brutal. The hardest part for me was sleeping on my back, sort of propped up. PT sucked in the beginning but really helped a ton. I had surgery last September and was fully healed within 6 months. It doesn't bother me at all anymore.
Btw, if you have the surgery, definitely get the nerve block!!!
