Things I wish I had known

No matter how well one prepares for anything there are always unknowns. However I hope that if enough people contribute to this website we can make the list of unknowns smaller.  If you have things to add please send an email.

  • You will need to pretend that you have T-Rex arms for a month.  Not only will you not be able to reach up, but you will also not be able to extend your arms out.
  • Make a plan for what you will wear if you return to work before you have full range of motion in your arms.
  • Make a plan for work your lunch.  For example if you usually take your lunch in a backpack you will need to have a plan for a different way to transport your lunch since you won’t be able to use a backpack.
