No Golf For A While

Sat Nov 18, 2017 2:47 am

Posted by DennisMiller


For the past 6 weeks or so, I've had terrible pain in my shoulders, hands and wrists.

After a bunch of tests, it's been determined I have bone spurs in both shoulders on the upper arm. They are both scratching on the tendons and a second one on my left arm is scratching my bicep.

Add to that a diagnosis of long term, severe carpel tunnel and as you can imagine, I'm not a real happy camper right now.

As of a meeting today with the surgeon, I'm scheduled for surgery on my left hand November 29th. I'll rehab and within a month or so after that, have the surgery on the right hand. Just by rough estimate, I probably won't be hitting golf balls until February or March.

Anyway, I'll have a lot of time to hang around here and drive you all nuts in the meantime. The way I see it, it might keep me from spending the money on the new 180 driver until it's been out a while.

This getting old stuff ain't for sissies...

Hi Dennis,

Sorry to hear of your shoulder problems I can understand and sympathise with you on this
having suffered from bad arthritis in my back arms and shoulders for
a number of years now.

And the similarities don't end there as I did also suffer from Carpel tunnel in both
hands.

I was still working at the time and it made some of the tasks in my job as an engineer very
difficult with the numbness and loss of feeling that I would get in
my hands and it didn't help either when swinging a golf club.

Fortunately I had the surgery done ten years ago now that totally eradicated the problem
completely,

Cheers

Good luck with the surgery Dennis.  I guess your guitars will also need to see some rest during your re-hab?

Hi Dennis ... Sorry to hear about your health issues, but look forward to reading your (more) regular posts while you recuperate - Think of it as having a winter break like a lot of people here have to do (?)

That's not a bad idea. I'll just act like the coconuts on my palm trees are snowballs.

I'm going to see how mentally painful it is, but I told the guys in my Monday group that I would come out the beginning of December after the first surgery and ride around with them. My game has been pretty awful lately, but I truly enjoy their company, so just riding around with them should still be a lot of fun.

Can you not get both hands done at the same time?

Will save on recovery time and mean you can't come on here and drive us all nuts = everyone is a winner!!!!!!*

You not having a subacromial decompression for the shoulders Dennis, if there are spurs affecting the biceps and rotator cuff? It’s a pretty straightforward op as they go.

I take it you’ve had nerve conduction studies to confirm the carpal tunnel syndrome? Make sure it’s not nerve root compression from your neck but I’m sure they’ve ruled that out. Meantime check out these https://youtu.be/oeV9IhFFpEk guys (there are three videos, one for each of the three main nerves in your arm).

LOL - I actually did ask about that, but there are certain reasons they don't like doing both at the same time. It's a bit too debilitating. Let's not get any more specific than that.
