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

May 2, 2012 · Shoulder replacement in Joint Replacements

Dr. Sperling did mine 6 weeks ago. I highly recomend him. I already have more movement in my arm then before surgery and much less pain.

Dec 14, 2011 · Shoulder replacement in Joint Replacements

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.

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.

About a year after my hip replacement, I started having groin pain again. It took 10 months and 7 doctors to discover that the replacement had come loose. After a revision replacement, I feel great again.
