Roy had successful shoulder surgery yesterday. He had an arthroscopic evaluation and underwent debridement of his labrum and rotator cuff as well as removal of an inflamed bursa.
He’ll begin a progressive rehabilitation program and if all goes well, he may possibly begin a throwing program in 6-8 weeks.”
It sounds as though everything inside the shoulder was as advertised. There was a risk that the original MRI did not show complete details, but it looks like all went according to plan, which is obviously a good thing. I went out on a limb and said I did not think Halladay would pitch again this year, which is still possible. However, that three month timetable is looking pretty likely.
Good news, and we hope Doc has a strong rehab and a speedy recovery. But the hard part still lay ahead.
