In march of this year 2011 I had my right shoulder replaced.
Prior to that I had constant pain in my shoulder esp. at night, the pain seemed to never stop.
First I tried physical therapy, which improved it a little bit, than I tried shots with temperary better results, till finally I decided to have my shoulder replaced.
Since than my shoulder has been pain free and 8 month after the op. I have about 80% of my original movements back. At the time of my operation I had also rotator cup repair, which slowed down my recovery.
Overall I think the operation was a huge success and I hope in a couple of months I be back to 100%.
