Mine is as good as new. can do everything I used to do. I notice it once in a while but that is all. A slight bump on the shoulder. But not nearly as big a lump if I didn't have the surgery. The physio is as important as the surgeon. Don't stop going forward. As soon as you are allowed get into the pool every day. Low stress exercise.
Not good news Sico. Get onto it early and don't take the first opinion as the only option. Think carefully about what you need your body to be able to do in years to come. Good luck with it all. Will it be a TAC job?
