Please take it slowly so your recovery will progress nicely, and you will be back even sooner. Take care!!

  • Here's hoping you have a speedy and uneventful recovery.....

    Best wishes,

  • If anyone knows how Ron is doing, Please update us :)
    L1 - S2 "gone" useless in 1 way or another. DDD. RA. Bone Spurs. Tons of nerve damage/issues. Stenosis. Both knees replaced. 50 yrs old. I had a great fall (hence my user name) at age 41 and it has been a domino effect every since.
  • Ron is home and recovering from the surgery. I believe Cath posted a update in the surgery forum last week. As to be expected he has lots of pain but surgery went well. He didn't leave to many details just said he was home and in pain. Sense he is in a full arm thing he can't really use his computer and I am sure the pain is pretty intense. I look at it this way one week down, almost 2 and 4-5 weeks to go before I think he said he would be out of the sling. Obvious I am just guessing as to when he will return.
  • Thanks for posting this.

    As a recipient of a partial replacement I can vouch for the extreme pain of this kind of surgery.

    I have had a few surgeries, and even the initial accident did not hurt as much as the post shoulder replacement surgery.

    I'll say a prayer for the days to pass quickly.
