A little update.
My surgery has been moved back a few times. Mainly because of Covid-19. However, during this extra time my other shoulder (left) has been getting worse so they X-ray'd it & found I have tendonopathy (calcium depositing on my tendons), scleroses (hardening of the muscle) & chronic rotator cuff disease (numerous little tears in my rotator cuff) in that shoulder. So we will try to get an MRI done on that one to see which shoulder needs to be done first. The left shoulder wants to pop out of socket a little at times & the pain is significantly worse than the right shoulder so I would not be surprised if they do that one first assuming we can squeeze in an MRI before the scheduled surgery for my right shoulder which is July 30th. Unfortunately, due to the surgery being pushed so far back it's not looking good for hunting this year & next year may even be iffy because I may have to get surgery on the other one.
It's frustrating for several reasons but it also makes me feel like my hunting days are numbered. Especially for mobile hunting. I have been mobile hunting almost exclusively for around 20 years but now it feels like that is in jeopardy. I guess I just can't push myself so hard when hunting.
