Very easy! Less pain than before the surgery. 6 weeks out and more movement than I’ve had in years!

After 2 rotator cuff repairs, I have been told I need a shoulder replacement. I have been referred to Mayo in Rochester and will be going there in 2 weeks for a consult. I have been told I need a reversal. Has anyone out there had this procedure? How did it turn out? I’m not looking to have much use of my left arm, since I haven’t used it much for several years. I’m mainly looking for pain relief.
Considering the pain I was in before, it was a breeze! It hurt less the evening of the surgery and the next day than it did the day before. I was walking the halls with just the walker and no assistance in 2 days – and showering and toileting alone, too!
I had a bone scan, which 2 drs. looked at and said nothing was wrong. I went to a pain dr., he looked at the same bone scan and saw it immediately. He referred me to University of Iowa, Dr. Callahan. I had what is called a revision, where they removed the bad part of the old replacement and put in new parts. I was 60 at the time. I have had no problems since then with either hip.
