I asked a lot of questions at my first post-op. Can I hike? Can I swim? Can I ride my bike inside?
The answers: sure, tentatively yes, actually I would just wait. No bikes, no scooters, no skateboarding. (I’m flattered that I look like someone who skateboards.) Let your scar fully heal. Just don’t fall.
Can I play the piano?
Yes! That’s a great idea. It will help bring movement back to your shoulder.
So it’s a good thing I divided my soul in seven pieces and hid them. Most of them are temporarily lost to me. But not the one that plays the piano.
