Icuby, I had Total Shoulder Replacement surgery in 2008 RH shoulder in March, and LH in Dec.
My Doc, said "Do what I tell you for the First 30 days and basic Do & Don't and you will not have any trouble"
I kept my arms Totally immobile for the first 30 days no lifting at all and did Rehab afterward,as prescribe. It did take some getting used to. it is different in some respects.
I will Never operate a pair of manual post hole diggers again. or operate a Stud Bar to pound out rocks in those post holes. I can throw a Baseball with my Son fairly well side arm to underhandedly. Some pain if I throw overhand. No problems catching. Turning wrenches or pounding a piece of metal on an Anvil No problem now.
IT did take 18 months+++ To to get comfortable using my new shoulders. they do feel different to some degree. I basically have an 1 & 5/16 Stainless Steel ball in each of my shoulders. Thunder!,, if that ball was affixed to the bumper of your Pickup you could pull a 2 horse trailer with it!!!!!
PAIN....Before Replacement, On a scale of 1 to 10, My pain was at least 45! I was taking 1, 800 mg Ibuprofen in the beginning to bust the pain. Before the surgery I needed 5, 800 mg Ibuprofen tabs to bust the pain and have a few hours of relief. 4 would not touch it!
After Surgery... Maybe a 2? at most! After my 2nd surgery was the first time in over 10 yrs I was pain free. and the pain was not ringing in my head 24-7-365!
Replacement Surgery is different to an Overhaul job! I still think most Dr.s, Start rehab to Damm quick on most people Seen too many folks go through the surgery and start rehab in short order and wind up back in surgery some time later for some reason or another.
Get You a Doc that ONLY Does Shoulders!!!! Not one that does Shoulders, Elbows, Knees
Hope this Helps.
