(Today is my 1 year Anniversary for having a Total Shoulder Replacement)

Last Update: October 02, 2014

Hello to everyone at WA.

Had to share this that with everyone.

After seven shoulder surgeries within the past decades.

My titanium steel shoulder is doing well,With the screws and back plate.

Much better than the Doctor had anticipated.

5 hour surgery. No problem for me.

If anyone here in WA, Has gone thru this? I would love to speak with them.

My therapy was done,only at (6) sessions,At a rehab center for the police department ,And the fire department,That have had been thru extensive trauma.

My Doctor pulled me out of therapy and told me that I have plenty of knowledge on this and that I should be able to make my arm work again.That is what I did.

I had done much research before getting the right Doctor,To perform this task.

Most people will state the fact,And say that they have the best Doctor,This is so not true.

Before I had this procedure done,I watched many different videos on the surgery.

The people that I thought that had thick skin,Had to walk away from the viewing.

While I run 3.5 miles per day,This what I was thinking about today.

Thanks to everyone that reads this.

I am very glad to be a part of WA.

To everyone out here,Have a great day,And a better tomorrow.

I have lived with this pain since 1992.
The nerve will not heal. Keeps me alert.

Sorry Ken,
The pain got so bad,That I went thru the Front of the Doctors Office.
Went right thru the room,When the Doctor was in with a patient.
At that point,I told the Doctor.I need your help now.
He told me that he will never forget that.
I kicked the door right open.

Happy WA Anniversary! Haven't had a shoulder or hip replacement, but I've had around 30 core surgeries due to various things. I think you should be VERY proud of what you've accomplished!
