Got to the ortho-doc this morning, and it went about like I expected: "Yeah, it's broken." "Great, what can I expect over the next few weeks?" "Yeah, it'll get better." Then he wanted to talk about Big Bang Theory. Nice enough MD, but there wasn't a whole lot of discussion of reassuring milestones along the path to recovery. (No, really, I'm not complaining here, these guys see so many of these it'd be like explaining a car's shifter pattern. But it's all new stuff for me!) So... youTube to the rescue:
Also, the doc though it would be useful for me to be in a figure-eight brace to keep my shoulders straight while this thing heals. Naturally his office referred me to:
I have never seen such an astounding (appalling?) array of braces, splints, wheelchairs, walkers, and traction devices. Take it from me: The Pros Trust ACME.
