    2016-2017 Injury List

    I thought I would start this. Shoulder is still having issues. Saw ortho today and going for a MRI. It looks like surgey is need to get ROM back. 2-3 month recovery. I wish I went in July like I orignally thought.

    Not an injury but I'm still waiting to pass a kidney stone...first flare-up was on 12 August. Had a fun afternoon in the ER that day and I've had two other flare-ups since.

    What's a "flare up?" Just curious - a year ago I had a big kidney stone removed - never passed it when small, apparently. Horrible recovery - but I'm always nervous about a new one forming. So if it didn't pass in August, what are doctors waiting for? Still hoping it'll pass naturally? The winter before my procedure was tough - didn't know what was wrong and keep skiing through pain...but at least I could keep skiing lol.

    Flare-ups of pain in the flank area...pretty intense, never had pain make me nauseous before. Percocet really didn't help after a bit but fortunately the pains subsided (for now).

    When the did the CT scan it was 7mm which is on the big side to pass, but I'm giving it time. If I was in really intense pain or in pain for days I'd be definitely be bugging my PCP for a urologist consult...but for now I'm trying to avoid any additional help.

    I had one that wouldn't pass in Dec 2010. I had a big ski trip planned for New Year's time frame. About a week before trip I finally decided to do out patient rotor router procedure. It's a little scary what they gotta do via your johnson, but I was knocked out for that and it went well. They even grabbed a second stone while in there. Left for ski trip on time and had fun. Modern medicine came through for me on that one and I'd do it again under the same circumstances.
    At Alta (Catherines) early Jan 2011:

    Broke a bone in my foot hiking about 2 months ago. Good timing. Swelling is gone and my foot once again fits into my ski boot without much pain. One more month to get back to close to 100%

    Do they still do the non-alcoholic beer trick? I will never forget my grandfather going in to the hospital to have one blasted and walking into his room prior to the procedure and seeing a six pack of Budweiser. Apparently the doc performing the procedure insisted he drink a bunch of N/A beer the day before because the acids can assist in breaking down the stone. I've never found research supporting this but always remembered the 6 pack on his hospital room tray.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    When Wendy broke her shoulder she left the fractures around the humerus head heal then went to PT and unfortunately never got 100% range of motion back. To get it back it would need surgery and she opted for limited range above her head. Her POV, as long as she could use her poles to get around she was good.
