After 41years of hanging onto the side of my bowels doing nothing for a living my appendix decided on Sunday morning to make a bid for notoriety. By Sunday evening I was doubled over. Spent the night in Nambour hospital in Queensland having morphine injected in to my tummy then got knocked out at 0900 for a laparoscopy appendectimy (sp?). It hadn't burst but was pretty unhappy by all accounts.

Back home now feeling beaten up with three little scars on my belly. Hurts to burp laugh and fart but can walk around and Surgeon seemed to think I should be back in the water inside 2 weeks.

Glad you are doing alright Mr Decorator, appendix giving out can be pretty nasty! Hope you are back in the water sharpish!

Pulled same fucking muscle between shoudler blades last night. Felt a bit tweaky after a moderately brutal bouldering session, then woke up at 2am in agony. Had to go downstairs and snack on some diclofenac and sit on the sofa until the pain subsided enough to get back to sleep.

Interesting and not to shit you up mate but the rotator cuff problems I have had for the last 5 years have all miraculously gone away since getting the offending disc removed and an implant put in.... Cannot believe how much my shoulders have all settled down now, I was 5 weeks post op yesterday, am pretty much off pain relief and am feeling stronger each day. Still not allowed to do any impact stuff as bone hasn't fused with implant yet but when it does it will be super strong and should last the rest of my days :)

Physio regime is pretty full on atm tho, just shoulder/rotator exercises about 4 times a day! Back on the pilates ball and balance board too for core strength, dunno where I will find the time once I am back to work!

Interesting that DJ, 'cos the physio guy was saying they had a visit from a world expert surgeon on shoulders and she had come to the conclusion that there may not be any advantage in having surgery at all , the post operative lay off from whatever gives you the grief was probably as good as anything ....... difficult to bin it though for a few months :?

Currently 2 months out of the water and going crazy!

Came back from a trip with a dislocated knee, torn MCL, damaged cartilage, and as it turns out, my knee never went back into line properly. Saw a Doc today who said:


Doc: If you'd come to us straight away, we'd have locked your knee straight with the patella in the right position to start the recovery.

Me: I did, well, within a few days of doing it anyway. You sent me for an X Ray, and an MRI, and gave me some crutches.

Doc: Oh. Ah Well. So do you want a physio referral to help get your knee back into alignment?

Me: No, I've done that already myself, and he's look at the MRI report.

Doc: Ok. Well Done. Anything else I can help with?


Interestingly, the physio told me what I've done, how to tape it in to place, and what I can and can't do to rehabiltate. Moral of the story? Physio all the way!


Also, anyone ever read PAin Free by Peter Egoscue? Incredible book. I'd recommend it for anyone out injured or on the road to recovery!

You have a point mate. Fortunately I saw both my Physio and Surgeon yesterday, the physio said I am doing very, very well, probably as I have been commited to doing my exercises every dam day, she says as long as I avoid impact sports I can pretty much do what I want, including going for mellow surfs to start with in the next couple of weeks, building up as my strength returns STOKED AS FECK!!! Thought I was out of the game for 6 months ffs, it's been 7 weeks today since the op :D

When I saw the surgeon last night he sent me for some x-rays to check the implant is exactly where it is supposed to be, compared them with the x-rays taken right after surgery and the implant has not moved one micron and you can see where the bone is already fusing with it. Surgeon agreed with the physio and said I can get back in the water over the next couple of weeks (if there is a wave) but to take it easy so I reckon a couple of mellow longboard sessions and then Thurso East ;-) (or not).

Anyway, I feel better than I have in about 5 or 6 years I think, still occasional aching in shoulders but the exercises the physio gave mne have cured all the rotator problems I had and I think are strengthening me for the future nicely. Been hitting the gym pretty hard since last week and news from yesterday means I can now start to throw in the upper body and mobility moves I need to get strong for paddling again yee-fricken-haaa :)

^^^^Good to hear improvements after surgery, my shoulder is doing better in the current flat spell too!! Watch out for docs who don't surf as I think they don't have a clue what goes down in a wipeout, they're thinking "yeah a bit of sitting on a board in the sea with sunshine could be beneficial" :roll:

Good news mate - glad you're on the way to getting wet , watch out for the spring low bounces off the reef :lol:

I was back at physio this morning, back to square 1 for me with rotator cuff - 4 weeks more then cortisone injections if not responding :roll:

Thanks ATT, not gonna be going anywhere near any reeefs for a good while yet, will probably avoid heavy beachies if we ever get any more swell on this coast at least for another month or so, don't wanna tempt fate! So just a few mellow longboard sessions I reckon, if Banff point gets a wave that would be perfect but as I am back to work in Sweden next week and looks like I will be there every week until Novemeber now I am not sure when I am gonna get time for waves, and it's the summer flatness upon us :( fingers crossed I might do the 500 mile round trip to surf small melvich sometime soon! ;-)

Vince, I'm no physio I would put money on that being an imbalance due to overdeveloped back / shoulder muscles.

Read this article, aimed mainly at climbers, but the problem is common to both sports;

cheers man

i was having physio sessions cos of a muscular imbalance in my shoulder last year. i have dodgy shoulders i guess, and it seems that any physical exercise requires a good warming up of them

think i shall start doing those stretches again. teach me to do press ups with my gf underneath me hanging on like a koala bear without warming up :lol:

You can get theraband on amazon. I recommend it as it's really helped me and I have dodgy shoulder syndrome too.

so far this year-

5-6 weeks off with a bad shoulder
3-weeks out with a badly infected cut and bruised bone
3 weeks surfing at 50% due to a tweaked knee
and now estimated 1-2months out of the sea waiting for a perforated ear drum to heal

Holy fuck that's gonna need a new passport photo! Hope she gets those stitch-plasters rather than actual stitches.Not so scarring.Then again the gash is a bit too canyon like for plasters.Tamayo Perry's head-board collision at Pipe is even worse to look at.Something like 50 odd staples.Yeuch! Hats off to them for having the cojones to charge those breaks.
Started out in life with nothing and I've still got most of it left!

Arh bollocks
Been diagnosed with Bursotis/impingement of the bursa on my left shoulder. Its been hurting for a while and the physio didn't help. Been told to rest it for a month :-(
Gutted as my surfing was just coming together and a big swell is just hitting as I type.
Anyone had this - any tips on getting it better quickly other than avoid overhead movements and inflammatory drugs? I also suspect this might be something to do with with paddling technique as well as my shoulder instability (due to partial dislocation of my collar bone).
Gutted.
