This email came in recently from a patient in Ohio, one year after his second sided ream and run.
“I am now 14 month post-op. I took these videos at a little more than 12 months post-op. The only setback that I had was not shoulder related but heart related. 6 months after my second surgery I had a M.I. caused by my “widow maker” being a 100% blocked. As for the shoulder, on a rare occasion during some of my exercise I may feel some pain, but nothing that affects my lifting or causes me to stop. I have to say 90% of the time, I am completely pain free during and after I lift. If I do feel any pain, it is more of annoyance than anything else.”
Here are some screen shots from the videos he sent.
This man is very strongly motivated and desired to have his shoulder arthritis managed in a manner that avoided the risks and limitations associated with a polyethylene glenoid socket replacement.
