So Consultant says I need further manipulation under anaesthetic - not shocked really its what I expected........ Says it does sometimes happen and its nothing I have or haven't done (I can actually feel it freezing up again - its like that advert for frozen pipes with the ice spreading). On a more positive note he did examine my other shoulder (I keep getting pains running down my arm & am petrified that its going the same way) but phew he said it was ok at the mo, but he would keep his eye on it lol......big relief smile

Surgery booked for the 20th April - now just gotta stay away from folks with coughs & colds.

I just can't wait to be able to drive & tie my hair up lol.

The pain has eased so much now smile I can't wait for this second surgery!

Onwards and upwards...........there is light at the end of this very long tunnel smile

Happy, painfree Easter my fellow Frozen friends, muuch love Linda xxx

    I had exactly the same as you Linda. Keyhole in October, then mua in February. It took that long to review then add to the list etc. I've not looked back since. He said they may have to do full keyhole if the mua didn't work, but thankfully it did. I was sling free on day 2 and down to paracetamol. movement didn't return immediately as the muscles were severely wasted. Lots of physio at the hosp and at home and m practically pain free and sleeping like a baby! 

    Good luck with yours too. It's not anywhere near as bad as the arthroscopic keyhole op. You wake up in a sling and feel bashed up, but it eases and then it's a matter of physio for the final hurdle of recovery. I still ache now because the from muscle is very weak. We have to stretch it, which hurts, but I can raise my arm fully once the physio works her magic.

    Hey Linda, that is great news I am so glad you are going to get this sorted out once and for all!  

    Make sure you have some physio sessions booked ready to start.... I had to wait a week and a half for an appt. after my surgery which was not ideal.

    You will be driving in a pony tail in no time!

    Happy Easter xxxxx
