I'm in my early 30's and am having arthroscopic shoulder surgery tomorrow to repair a torn rotator cuff. I am trying my best to not have to cancel my Thanksgiving Vegas trip in a couple weeks, even if I have to be in a sling the entire time. From what I've read the first week of recovery really is pretty miserable and after that it gets a little bit better. We're not planning on doing anything too crazy if we're able to keep the trip as planned, and I will probably spend a lot of time in the room resting or plopped down in front of a slot or video poker machine. Am I being completely unrealistic or can i hold out hope?
