On 12/16 I'm going into the Hospital to have my shoulder replaced with a new titanium one. I've already had 3 surgeries on the shoulder to repair rotator cuff tears, a ruptured biceps tendon and the removal of 2 bone spurs. Now they tell me that all of the cartilage in the joint is gone and that is what is causing the unrelenting pain. I've known people who've had knees and hips replaced but I've never heard of anyone having their shoulder replaced. Has anyone here had it done or know someone who's had it done??? I'd love to know what I'm in for. They tell me it's going to take a year of physical therapy to regain my range of motion and strength back. To be honest, that would be a bonus. All I want is for the pain to stop.
