Discussion: Shoulder replacement

Birdie...I had shoulder replacement done in 2006 and it went well. I do not have quite the strength I once had and I do not throw like I once did either but I am doing well it. I play third base for Still Young/DLB 50 Major and I feel my limitations to some degree much of the time. Recovery time is a little longer than they tell you at least for me it was.

Your results will depend on how much the surgeon has to do, like mentioned earlier a hemi-arthroplasty (stainless ball on the end of the head of the humorus) will give you functionality enough to be active and have fun but all your pain/discomfort will not be gone. The reversal is much more involved and your recovery time will be much longer. Like (the wood) mentioned above I recommend a second and third opinion and do your own research from guys like me who have had it done.

Good luck with your decision.
