It looks like not such a big deal, this incision site. But I have learned that rotator cuff surgery is major and requires a major commitment of healing time and physical therapy time. Add to that a ruptured tendon in the same side wrist….well, you get the picture. Not a lot of wool work is happening here. Seven weeks post surgery, I am able to spin on my Hansen electric a little bit every couple of days. I cannot yet do any dying because I cannot lift the dye pots…not even when they are empty! I don’t know when the lifting of the dye pots will resume. I hope by October. The recovery from any rotator cuff surgery runs between 4 and 6 months. For those of you in and around the Twin Cities: I still have roving in stock, dyed and un-dyed. You can contact me to make appointments as the Monday hours at the studio have had to give way to the hours required in the physical therapy gym. A selection of my dyed fibers are also available at Steven Be Design and at the Textile Center.
