SLAP tear surgery from the car accident. A SLAP tear is an injury to the labrum of the shoulder, which surrounds the socket of the shoulder joint. They had to give an injection in my neck to numb up the shoulder. They then knocked me out with some medicine. Woke up in a haze and a sling. Following night, I was in extreme pain and couldn't sleep for days. 4 weeks out now and getting better now but still hurts when I move it. Hope it'll heal up fast.
