I just had total knee replacement surgery in April and I am in no frame of mind to consider shoulder replacement. Has anyone here had shoulder replacement surgery?
I have the same after a Frozen Shoulder. Diagnosed after F.S. with wear/tear Arthritis.
The pain is awful at times and my shoulder or top of arm will go into spasm which is scary.
Owing to stomach ulcer I cannot take Anti-inflammatories.
Have you tried Physiotherapy. I was given exercise to do at home to avoid F.S. again and have now been given an Anti-inflammatory gel to rub in.
I am going to stick with this for a time and see how things work out.
I know what you are going through, exercise is really important for Arthritis.
All the best, Solofelix.
