Thanks for all the nice comments and prayers brothers! All went well I reckon, in a fair amount of pain, but muddling my way through as best I can. One thing I appreciate bout my Dr, is he is honest! He said when the nerve block wears off, It'll feel like I had a javelin stuck in my shoulder! What's been as bad as the shoulder is my whole upper body... Even swallowing water sucks.. Been walkin round behind the house (cuz I can only take so much recliner) thinkin bout how good of a huntin day I bet it would be! Not surprising, huh? Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

I have crushed my collar bone in 3 places. Your description just snapped me back to some not so great memories.

Prayers for a smooth recovery and some painless nights of needed rest my friend.

The recliner is your friend. So is ice and hydrocodone.

DRT, my wife put you up to that?! She's been after me to "take a pain pill..." I keep fighting her on it, but, between her, and the pain, they may win! Still being bull-headed for now, ain't took any yet. Just close my eyes, go to my favorite huntin spot, with the fall colored leaves rattling with the light norh breeze, with many of them falling to the ground like snow, maybe some deer around too, or.... Oh well, y'all get the picture! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

My doc said if you're not in pain you recover faster.

I figured I was paying him a lot to get me back to useful and it was wise to listen. But opinions vary.

Hope the recovery goes well

Do what the do tells you to, many people get to feeling better and end up causing more damage that means you need another surgery to fix things

Ha! Still good guys! Didn't ever take any pain meds, had my first physical therapy Thursday. Actually felt as much good, as it did hurt, I guess just felt good to get it out of that sling! Was proud to hear physical therapist tell me at that first visit that I had the most movement of anybody he's ever had, just a week after surgery. Somethin like usually folks have like 60-70 deg., and I was already able to do 110 deg... Started to tell him it was cuz of all these years of shootin the longbow In all reality, I just feel blessed that that's the case, and hoping it equates a smooth recovery! Anyway, I have "homework" of exercises to do every day, and I'm stickin to em, even with a little pain along the way. Thanks for your concerns, and prayers brothers! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty
