Reverse shoulder replacement

@basslakebabe19, Good morning, I have had a reverse shoulder replacement after 2 attempts at repair including a cadaver graft. It completely eradicated all pain. What a gift! My surgeon prepared me well and I followed the physical therapy schedule religiously including the at home routine. For me the only downside was the fact that my right arm was a couple of inches longer than my left arm. So….I learned to use my left arm for many tasks. That has resulted in weakness from lack of use on the right side. #2 was airport security. I never make it through the big machine and then must endure some pretty invasive pat downs. Sometimes my carry-on is examined very thoroughly. Be free of suffering and full of joy today. Chris

@artscaping Good morning Chris I was interested in learning about your replacement and airport The Dr gave me cards to carry even when I had cataract .I already had one from my heart surgery Didn't the Dr give you any card to carry for airport security?

Thanks, Chris! I have had three regular surgeries, but all eventually failed. It can't wait to end the pain. Will be needing lots of help for Six weeks.

Dear Chris, I am suppose to have a reverse shoulder replacement in a month. I am very apprehensive. Were you in much pain the few weeks after surgery? Did you have a hard time adjusting to an artificial joint. Any information would be helpful?
