Re: LDTT Surgery coming up
I have complete tears of both the supraspinatus and the infraspinatus. (I slipped on the the kitchen floor. I'm a klutz...)
Here in Ontario, there are long waiting lists for surgery, for both shoulders and knees. Less so for hips.
Because I have a massive tear, my surgeon put me onto a study that is being conducted through five of our major hospitals. The study is looking at outcomes, a comparison between this surgery and arthroscopic. By agreeing to participate I gave up the choice of surgery. A computer randomly assigned it.
However, it's being done by the chief of orthopedic surgery who is a specialist I this procedure.
But I haven't been able to connect with anyone who has had it.
My physiotherapist gave me his post-op protocol, but feels that the surgeon will have his own.
I was just hoping to get a first hand account.
