About a month ago I started my physiotherapy regimen following surgery on my shoulder. At times it was frustrating and I felt like progress was a long way away. However, I didn’t give up, I stuck to the boring exercises daily, and focused on the long road ahead and where I wanted to get to. I wasn’t too aware of the time frame for recovery for this surgery, and what kind of benchmarks to look for, but I kept going. Today, my range of motion is nearly back to 100%, and aside from a little tightness and a dull ache, I feel like I am well ahead of schedule. Keeping in mind that my goal has to always be fully recovered within 3 months, I am determined to keep working hard and pushing myself daily. No excuses, just hard work.
