Today I called my orthopedic surgeon to schedule a shoulder replacement. It was scoped and cleaned up 3 yrs. ago, and surgeon said at that time there was nothing more to do but replace it. I am happy to have gotten 3 more years out of it since then, but at times it is so painful that I can't sleep or do other activities.
I am told I will be in a sling for a week, and that function returns fairly quickly with physical therapy for 6-8 weeks. I would like to hear from other stitchers who have had a shoulder replacement, as I know lots of hips and knees, but no shoulder patients. Thanks
PS I am a R handed RN, and this is my L shoulder.
