I tore the labrum in my left shoulder while studying martial arts last October. I finally fixed the issue yesterday by having the operation to repair it. I’m now out of commission…saying it is painful is definitely an understatement. Luckily I am married to an amazing woman who can single-handedly take care of her gimp husband, a seven month old baby whose growth is off the charts (and starting to crawl!), and two 80+ pound labrador retrievers.
