Bummer

Recommended Posts

Went for some tests today and I'm really depressed about the results. I'll need two surgeries in the next week or so that will sideline me for 'spring training'. Carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve displacement which will likely be done at the same time. I planned on having that hand taken care off at the beginning of the month, but the wife's been in the hospital and I had to put it off.

Doc says eight weeks minimum before I can think about holding a rod, possibly ten. Not only my fishing is delayed, but the work that needs to be done on the boat too. Jeez, the bait monkey hasn't stopp dancing since I got the news. Guess I'm gonna have to give moma the plastic to hold.

I gotta have something fishing related to do, or the guys in white jackets will be here before I know it. Maybe I could take up writing my fishing memoirs like McManus or what's his name that wrote about them good ole boys' adventures. What we re their names? Harry and Charlie I think.

Hey, I'm a fisherman to the core and we've been known to spin a tale or two. I remember one time........Dang this ain't gonna work, I can't remember.........What's that brown, smelly stuff called again?

Sorry to hear that man, but at least this didn't happen in the middle of the season.  Here's to a speedy recovery, who knows you might heal faster than you think!

Sorry to hear that, but in the grand scheme of things, it's just a minor hiccup.  You'll be back and at 'em in no time!

So sorry.  I went through the same thing about 5 years ago with my shoulder.

Get well soon. Don't rush it, that just prolongs healing in the long run. We'll save you some.

I hope it all goes well for you man; I'm sure it will. I had shoulder surgery last January and it's great now. All last season was far better than it had been for years; so glad I had it done. As said above, just a small hiccup. Stay positive and do your PT exercises as advised. I can't stress enough about being religious with your PT.

I had carpal tunnel surgery two years ago. After years of pulling wrenches it was definitely overdue. Best thing I've done in a long time. Took about 2 months before I could fish comfortably, but well worth it. Do the exercises. You won't be sorry...
