Well..it's official!!!

Surgery Tuesday morning. Getting my left shoulder replaced due to degenerative arthritis. Putting in a titanium replacement. Hopefully after this we can get the clubs back out and get back to work on the '62. Never get thru a metal detector after that. Youngest person the doctor has ever replaced a shoulder in. Man it's heck to get old.

Kevin

Good luck kev, Surgery on joints is a aaaaaa pain (wow no swears)... Take it easy after, I know it's tempting to get right back at it, but you just make things worse..

In '62 we were just starting school. That seems like ages ago.

Stone...I can't get right back at it. The arm has to be immobolized for 6 weeks to allow the bone to nit (sp.) to the prosthesis. They remove the ball from the shoulder by cutting it off, ream out the arm bone and insert the prosthesis. I guess it takes about the same time to grow around it to fuse it solid as a broken bone does. After that it is physical therapy time to get the muscle built back up.

Ahh oh contrar you can get right back to it, you end up using the other arm... and then you fall down or something and mess stuff up realllll good. Just like how I wasn't supposed to be able to walk my my leg for a long time... within the week I got angry and threw my crutches across the room and insisted on walking no matter how painful it was.

Oh yeah physio... ARGGGGGG I hated that soo painful, but I konw it's the only reason I can use my leg..

Muscle stimualtors are cool though... LOL I always wanted to stick a muscle stim on my tounge

MMMMMMMMMM lets see, I had 20 staples in my back from surgery because of 2 ruptured & fractured disc. One week late I was putting a motor in our 40 chevy, YES I had help w/the sheetmetal but I did the motor work. I'll bet $$$$$$$$$$$$ you'll find something to do, even if its something small....joe

hey too many, didn't you just feel USELESS after your surgery and feel you had to do something??? THE WORST part about sugury though is having to sponge bath yourself. (my mom offered, hopefully only because she cares, but I declined)

sorry but when I had my surgery I had been paralyzed on my left side of my body for about a week & was living on heavy doses of drugs that should of put me in a coma, at least thats what the doc & hospital said when I told them EVERYTHING I took to TRY to kill the pain, and just so you know STONED, 4 hours after my surgery I told the doctor I was going to walk & I did before he walked out the door, and you know what I was doing later that week. I never stopped & wont untill my body tells me I cant move anymore

Didnt have that problem, but the wife did it for me anyway & we all know what that'll lead too ...joe

OOOOOOOOOOOO yea one more thing, I really do feel for Kevin & the carp he'll be going through along w/the pain, because after 12 knee surgeries, 2 back surgeries, losing a kidney and getting injections over the last 10yrs in my back, neck & knees, I truely believe I know what the definition of [COLOR=red]PAIN[/COLOR] is...........joe

if it makes you feel any better i broke my pinky once hitting a door. j/k
but i do have an extra kidney. went in to the doctor for something a while back and the doc said i have 3 full functioning kidneys and that he has never even heard of that. i think of it as my life line-- if i am really hurting for money i'll just sell it.

Best of luck on your4 surgery Keven. I can not fathom what you are going through as I have never had any surgery although maybe I hould have had knee surgery 30+ years ago and would have saved a lot of pain over the years. Keep the board updated on your progress.
