Pretty freaked out.
Anyone out there had a full shoulder replacement and continued to kite?
Or does anyone know of anyone who came back to kiting after a shoulder replacement?
I'm not clear what motion he loses, but can he switch from a bar with above-the-bar depower to below-the-bar depower? Would one be better for him?
Or probably even better: the Ocean Rodeo / North back line trim bars.CaptainArgh wrote: ↑Tue Nov 28, 2017 10:40 pmI'm not clear what motion he loses, but can he switch from a bar with above-the-bar depower to below-the-bar depower? Would one be better for him?
Good call. I did not do that in my last Achilles re-attachment surgery so my foot is now numb as they cut nerves. My stitches also opened up. I'm not blaming the doctors entirely as I started kiting about 6 months early. Though I doubt the nerve damage happened as a result of that. Same with the stitches. I guess there is always a certain amount of risk, but by being informed you might improve your probabilities.
