    RP, sounds like your best option is surgery as much as I hate it. I will be praying for a quick recovery or healing for you.

    Russ - You have gone through a Sh1tload in your life. As much as I would dread the pain of recovering from the surgery, I have to believe it will eventually bring you to a place of less pain than you are going through now. I certainly hope so. Stay strong, friend. Deal with what you can, let go of the rest. I believe you can conquer this.

    Russ, it has been quite awhile. I am saddened to hear that you are once again living with so much pain. I remember the conversations that we had prior to your last procedure. You were being told then that it was a last shot for you and any chance at a "normal" life. You got over three good years so it was the right choice. Now you are back to square one but again they are offering you a chance. Like the last time they are calling it a last chance. You are first and foremost a fighter. Go for it. From a quality of life perspective you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
    The only other place that I would look to for more advice at this point would be military orthopedic surgeons. With the wars of the last decade they have been on the leading edge of repairing and rebuilding orthopedic injuries that a short time ago would have been considered unfixable. If you are a vet the VA could fast track you to the right surgeons. If not, the Society of Military Orthopedic Surgeons should be able to put you in touch with the best in their organization. Some great surgeons and traumatologists out there that might be able to give you some additional input.
    Stay strong.

    hardcore,
    Thanks so much . i undergo the procedure 12/6 . Without the support of my friends on TWT I would have called it quits a long time ago . I don't know where everyone thinks i am a fighter but I appreciate it . I think of myself as a broken down old man . Yet with all of the support from all of you I 'll go ''once more into the breach dear friends ! Once more !!''

    Good luck to you. I've always considered myself lucky not have shoulder issues. I spent eighteen months in (daily) rehab and felt sorry for those shoulder guys. If I'm seated I can be pretty much pain free, but shoulder guys have to deal with pain constantly, even when doing something as innocuous as reaching for the salt. I hope you get better fast and heal well.

    pm01,
    thanks man , i tried to tell my dr. that every time i try to reach for something I feel like some one is stabbing me . even just sitting up is horrible . i am /was right handed ; and every time I try to reach for something I nearly pass out . The implant is loose and riding up causing a great deal of pain -the joint is blocked and my elbow stays swollen and my hand clawed - hopefully all will be well soon .

    R.payton, how'd your shoulder get in such bad shape in the first place? Sounds like a hell of an injury.
