After two and a half years whingeing about my dodgy arthritic shoulders, I am finally having my right shoulder operation tomorrow lunchtime. Some of you may remember I had the left shoulder done in September 2015:

Last time it took six months post-op before I got full use of my left arm back but at least I was relieved of a lot of pain. I am hoping for the same with my right shoulder and eventually I will be able to get back to a regular sleep pattern again!

My modelling output will be limited for a while but at least that allows even more browsing on the forum!

Dave

Good luck Dave. I'm sure you are going to get a good shoulder again after some focused re-hab training. Thumbs up. :thumb:

Ouch! Best wishes for a swift recovery. As an archery coach, I know just how complex shoulders are, and as a fellow sufferer I know how much they can affect every bit of your life. Here's to a pain free life!

Best of luck, the quickest road to recovery, (so they say), is exercise. So get in plenty of this :snack: or this :cheers: whilst recovering.

Thanks everybody!

Hardest bit of the op will be the fasting beforehand!

I've long wondered about that. I've been told not to eat anything after 12 midnight the day before a surgery. At 12:15am a glass of orange juice is vorboten! But at 11:45pm I can eat a mushroom cheesesteak with fried onions. Best of luck to you. You know this is a big deal for you - one of your two favorite shoulders in the world - but the surgeon probably does a dozen such operations a week. You'll be in good hands.

A good opportunity to study in preparation for your modelling output after you've recovered!

Best regards.

Thanks James and Fred. :thumb:

I am having the same surgeon who operated on my left shoulder a year ago so I know I am in good hands. I am not being over-dramatic in saying that it will have a huge effect on my quality of life which has suffered a lot over the past two years due to the ongoing (two) shoulder problems.

I now have fifteen minutes left in which to have another drink of water and that will be it until this evening!

Thanks again everybody.

I am back home tonight after a successful operation. Now the long road to recovery begins!
