    I had Right shoulder Surgery for a torn labrum, biceps tendon and rotator cuff in 2006 due to an old archery/softball injury. The surgery and physical therapy was not fun. Fast forward to last summer: my shoulder was giving me fits again. A MRI confirmed another tear in the same labrum. The...

    I've been pretty busy since coming back from Colorado and haven't had time to post any story. I'll try and get it told next week as I'm convalescing from another scope on my right knee. Multiple tears in the meniscus as a result of a bad fall in the mountains. Shouldn't be down more then a few...

    I have an older friend who never did archery. She has shown an interest in it, but tells me she has had 2 rotator cuff surgeries with 5 anchors. Doctor said no more than 10lbs. Anybody have any experience with this type of surgery? Is it 10lbs for life or is this something that can be built up...

    Please share a thought or prayer for Jason today as he is about to undergo disc surgery on his lower back. He injured it a couple of moose hunts ago and has had a very tough year with foot and leg pain. We hope this cures the problem and he has a speedy recovery. Mike

    Well, cataract surgery was completed this morning, doc said everything should be back to match my left eye in a week or so. Left eye is 20/20, which aint bad for an old coot. Now I'll have to get used to shooting a clear target, instead of guessing which of the two fuzzy spots to shoot at...

    I had the misfortune to tear my rotator cuff last winter (supraspinatus). Kinda cramped my style big time when it came to shooting. After 4 months of physio, an ultrasound showed a 1" x 1" tear. Surgery was recommended so I'll be stitched in October. So much for hunting this year. I have...

    I've had a rough time with tendonitis in my right (string hand) elbow this summer. I've tried to shoot two tournaments: the first after a round of anti-inflamatory treatments, the second after a cortisone injection directly into the tendon. Both times, the pain reared its ugly head after a...

    I hurt my shoulder last fall/winter. I couldn't shoot my bow without pain, so I stopped shooting a stickbow. I missed most of bow season (not acceptable) with the injury. This spring, I tried shooting again and had pain while shooting. Before and after shooting I had trouble sleeping due to...

Two torn places so now am in a sling with a shoulder full of screws and string. My question is how long was your recuvery time, and when was your arm healed eneugh...

Being 64, I m now up to 4-5 bike rides a week at 10 miles per ride. Feel better than I have in some 15 years. Get tired when I dont get enough...

    I had an acl replaced a week and a half ago. They harvested some ligament from my patella tendon (front of knee) and drilled a hole through a couple of bones to thread the new "ligament" through. Then they harvested bone plugs from behind my knee caps (said I'd never miss 'em!) and "plugged the...

    My friend Marc (PAW) of Penn Archery Works is having some heart issues. He is going to miss ATAR because the doctors are doing a heart catheter on June 29. Marc is a good friend to me, and to many others, and one of Traditional Archery's real treasures, IMO. I'm sure he would appreciate your...

    I have had a torn ACL for a number of years and I reinjured it out shed hunting with the kids the other day. We finally decided that I better get it fixed before I really mess up my knee. So I am going in to get a hamstring graft in a couple of hours. Not a "serious" problem (compartively...
