November is finally here!! I’ve been waiting because at the end of this month I go for an update on my left shoulder and I find out if the replacement is still doing ok, or if I will need to plan for surgery so they can take the replacement out completely.
It’s been six months since the last update and at that time it had already gotten worse from the previous check up.
I am nervous about what the doctor will tell me, but I’ve also known for a year that the replacement is failing. For the last year it’s been about pain control and while it doesn’t hurt as bad as it was a year ago I can tell its growing weaker and trying to hold my arm up and use it, the little bit that I do, causes it to grow tired.
I know it’s just a matter of time and in 3 weeks I will know just how much time I have left.
