Each week Digiwaxx.com sends out DJ’s Top 5 that were posted on my other website, Fusicology.com. This week I was tagged for a post I did at the end of 2009. These are still in rotation but it’s all good when you revisit.

If you have followed my show since its inception April of 2006, you have known that I have encountered various issues with my left wrist, arm and shoulder. This has hampered my consistency to produce podcasts or random mixes as I’ve done in the past. During the summer of 2009 the situation became unbearable so I went to an orthopedic doctor to find out what was going on. After enduring three months of physical therapy and one MRI later, a torn posterior labrum in my shoulder was the result of the pain. Over the years I have compensated for it without realizing it. I tried everything (even acupuncture which I love) to resolve this before seeing a surgeon.

The Tuesday after Labor Day I underwent a very successful surgery. The path of recovery has been extremely tough. It has taken almost seven months to move my arms above my head, pull my hair back, get dressed, cook, DJ, etc. A lot of this took it’s toll on me because I was unable to do a lot of the things I love. I am almost at the seven month mark and I am excited to get back to normal.

I completed a mix two weeks ago but with the relaunching of Fusicology.com (within the next two weeks) I have not had time to drop the vocals over the show. Stay tuned for it within the next 48 hours.

I want to thank you guys for all of the well wishes via email, Twitter and Facebook. Most of all, thank you for sticking around to listen.
