Just reading posts on scs and it seems that you can resume your life like you did after a trial is placed. But, when you have the perm. one it's like hell at first. Off work for 8-12 weeks no arm lifting on the stories go. Can you tell me how this is??? Tell me also how you did both at trial and after the perm. one was placed. You can also pm me. Thanks my first appt. is the 17th of April and the more I look into this It seems like I find out more.
