Avascular Necrosis in both shoulders brought about by 30 year use of corticosteroids for another problem. I am frightened by this. I have heard that shoulder replacements are very difficult. I have come on here to learn about it and hope you all will share the good, the bad and the ugly with me.
At 56, I have already endured two total hip replacements and 10 months out with the second one. The second THR has some lingering problems and this is why I have not ventured into my next challenge with the shoulders. But here in the US, I need to get this done while I am still young or there will be little chance of ever having it done because our new death panels have begun.
Right now my shoulder pain does not overcome me. Doing the breast stroke in the pool can set off discomfort. Thank you in advance for sharing with me!
