I had surgery Nov. 2 for a 60% torn labrum and 40% torn bicep. I started my hitting rehab Jan 2, throwing rehab and golf on Feb 2. Thats all without having the rehab resources that Ludwick has at his disposal.
I love when people simply tell me what I said is "not true".
I had my shoulder repaired in 2009, and it easily took 4 months.
Gee, could it be that every injury is different and some can take longer to heal than others? I think the answer is yes.
Ludwick said himself on Fox in the booth with Thom and Welsh that it would be mid-August to early September.
