I am starting to have more reservations about the reverse shoulder replacement surgery scheduled for April 20. The biggest reason is restricted ROM after healing. I knew i might not be able to reach behind my back but i never thought about not being able to swim the freestyle or crawl stroke. I have a full tear for two tendons and definitly pain but still have my range of motion. This makes the choice much harder for me. I have pain elsewhere in my body too so i wonder if the benefits are worth it. Has anyone been able to swim after surgery with the crawl or is this a never going to change thing? I have had courses of PT with no change so i have to do something. I was more certain when i had my knee done than i am now.
