Hi all, finally saw the surgeon regarding my shoulder. I have been offered the choice of two procedures- full shoulder replacement or a keyhole surgery to remove the diseased muscle tissue and repair what they can. My ball joint isn’t fitting properly in the socket, up too high at the top and space at the bottom.
I found this picture online which is similar to mine although the gap at the bottom of mine is wider.
I have opted for the keyhole at the moment because I don’t feel I’m ready for such a big surgery. The keyhole should help with the pain but won’t give me a wider range of movement and if it doesn’t help then I will need to get the big op. So, anyone had a similar keyhole surgery or shoulder replacement done? I would love to hear your experiences.
