Both Shoulders and Hip total Replacements

I had these done , Shoulder (2010) and Hips (2011 and 2013)
My Hip surgery was fine and the physical therapy was easy going.  After about 6 weeks I was back to normal!

Now, with the Shoulder replacements, that was different.   I was in formal physical therapy for about 14 months, but at home therapy continued till 26 months post op.
It was a very pain recovery, I worked hard at it every day.   The results have paid off, right now my shoulders are good or better than new.  I have more range of motion now then I did way before surgery.

My advice is to search and research the surgeon that is going to do these replacements.  It makes so much of a difference.  For the Hips, just a small minute fraction of a difference between leg lengths can cause many problems after the surgery.

I am glad I had all those surgeries.  I could not continue without them.
