Be careful cranking update

Post by Model T Mark » Fri Sep 18, 2020 12:10 pm

Surgery went well and for the most part it was a torn tendon and a frayed bicep muscle. Now time to heal and rehab. I got home about an hour ago. Please learn from my mistake only crank with the spark up and never wrap your thumb around the starting crank. This isn’t meant to scare anyone just think about what your doing.

Good to hear that you're over the surgery hump. Now comes the tedious process of healing. Amazing how long it takes to get over something that happened in such a short time.

Best wishes and hang in there.

Hope your recovery goes better than mine. Don't try to do too much too soon.

Very glad the surgery went well! I hope your recovery is quick and as pain free as possible! Don't over do it, just follow the therapy instructions and it will get better before you know it!

Mark,

We will be praying for a speedy recovery. And as others have said -- follow the Dr's advice and don't try to do too much too soon.

Respectfully submitted,

I’m planning on following the doctors orders to the letter. It ended but being a torn labrum and frayed bicep muscle tissue. She said the bursa in my shoulder was well inflamed and that was drained and significantly trimmed. Although damage in the shoulder was less damage in the arm was more. Glad to have it behind me. Take care everyone.
