thank you both for your reply,s it,s both of my shoulder,s which will need replacing due to wear and tear after fifty years of being out in all weather,s in the building trade etc. at the moment i am being treated via injection,s in the joints which give me about two month,s of reduced pain . the docs say they are having trouble getting the injection,s in the joint now so i will have to have replacements done. i am not sure that at my age if it,s viable i an 71 also hae brittle bone,s so not sure about it. michael2

Hello Michael,

That's one big op!

I have only had arthroscopic subacromial decompression (which you probably know all about) so can't answer you.

I wish you all the best though and a speedy recovery.

crumbs Michael - never ever heard of a shoulder replacement before - still, knee and hip replacements are commonplace and successful so I should imagine shoulder replacements are too
