I finally had my left shoulder replaced on February 22, 2019. It was 5 long years in the making as I was not able to take time needed for recovery and care for my husband during those years. But it's a done deal now! Things generally are going pretty well, and I'l post more in the coming weeks about my surgery experiences and recovery. But I thought I'd just get this thread going now that it's been a week since surgery and I'm finally feeling up to getting back on the forum a little bit. If you'd like to read the saga that led up to this wonderful event, my shoulder pre-op thread is here.
