    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Really have not been able to update as that Monday appointment was a disaster. The new shoulder specialist surgeon started off the appointment almost two hours late so I was a mess going in since I have great difficulty leaving my work for normal hour or so for appointments but now I was gone...

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Thank you @Jamie for your response. I have been peeking at it since you first sent but, honestly, I'm really just "taking one step at a time" and just avoiding thinking about what I really can't find much information on and can't fix on my own. I'm babying it a little since the doctor said he...

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Thank you, Jaycey, for the welcome back. No, no reason given by surgeon as to why. I didn't ask as I think I know .... probably my somewhat abuse. When I was thinking about the replacement, both the OS and PT told me I would most likely not have 100% range of motion as in lifting above head...

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Happy New Year one and all! With the holiday season (and another tooth ache), I've managed to keep stuffing newest happenings with my shoulder out of my mind. But, time to start dealing with it. Back in early October, I scheduled an appointment with my shoulder OS to see why I was seeming to...

    Kathy @Kathy0427 Greetings fellow Pittsburgher! I'll have to go and catch up on your story. Thank you for your kind words regarding my story. I'm still doing about the same Back/hip still hurts incredibly but I am so short staffed in my program, I can't even go to see anyone. The OS who I...

    A Shoulder Saga

    Jamie, I am so glad your "saga" sent me an email! I haven't had any from BoneSmart in ages! My sympathies for the passing of your husband. So tough. Hopefully you both were able to find great comfort with each other though such a hard time. Yes, shoulder surgery was way more difficult...

    A Shoulder Saga

    @Atkinson8 ---- I don't seem to feel as though I get much relief from cortisone shots and never know if I imagine that or not. Looking back, my surgeon did a cortisone shot for my right shoulder after the surgery on my rotator cuff on the left. With your post above and looking back, I...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    Constanze - Thank you. So sad that our president's first statement was a reference that we should have an armed guard at a place of worship. We happened to be heading out for errands when first responders were heading that way. Yes, frightening but safe.

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    @Lmflora yes, I do remember you. I still consider my hip recoveries a great success in my life --- just looking at them as stepping stones to get back to rather than the leap to health that I thought it was going to be......and I've learned patience along the journey. So hope your second...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    FOUR YEARS AGO TODAY! Wow! It is really hard to believe. I've gone back and reread and have truly forgotten how I felt before and after the right hip surgery. So glad that I did the THR but so wish it had solved my right side problems like it did the left. So, unfortunately, still same old...

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Actually came on to give a fourth anniversary update for hip surgery and realized I'd not updated here in quite a while either - even missed my second anniversary of shoulder replacement --- but nothing much to update other than that both shoulders still doing great. Right replacement shoulder...

    @MajorHeidi Back to work already! Wow, that time flew ... at least from this side. All went very well hopefully. Yes!!!!!!!.....the injection though incredibly painful to get ... I've had a couple lumbar injections and none of them hurt at all so I was totally not prepared for it to hurt...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    So, I saw the Pittsburgh arthroscopic hip surgeon, supposedly the best of the best. He ordered a hip MRI -- finally I got one. Awaiting the results on that. I cancelled the lumbar spine injection but now have rescheduled. I wanted to hear what arthroscopic hip surgeon had to say and I had...

    Reverse Shoulder Replacement My Shoulders?!!?

    Oh my goodness! I thought I've been on here since last October! Here it is May already.... and I noticed we have our own "Shoulder" space!!! Wow!:yahoo::console2::) :-) (: I guess I haven't been back over here because my shoulders have been both doing really well. My right replacement...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    @Krista Thank you so much for the HOPE. It means so much to me. Looking at his website, and he sounds fabulous! Really sounds possible --- I'm going to try to contact him to see if he knows anyone in Pittsburgh. Its funny --- the doctor I went to for the ultrasound mentioned that the only...

    THR My second hip.... Dilly Dilly!

    So good you are doing well! Patience . . . advice from the most UN-patient patient. Enjoy this recovery and such wonderful reason to just relax as that is truly the best medicine. I'm still trying to get back to life at full speed and pain free. My right hip/back is again giving me so...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    @Krista, most wonderful to hear that you did do so well from repairing the gluteus medius/minimus tears! My head just cannot wrap around that I have to hurt this bad still! I'm hopeful hearing from you that maybe maybe I can get to the source of this and be healthy and pain free for at least a...

    THR Me2 and Recovery

    @Krista I remember your having tears repaired . . . how are you doing now? And how was recovery? I'll go back and look at that thread and see your updates. This is same pain that has plagued me since even before my right hip replacement. My most recent MRI of lumbar spine shows some craziness...
