In August 2008 I had a hemi shoulder replacement and a 4th attempt to repair rotator cuff. The surgeon said nothing else can be done. I have limited range of motion and severe chronic pain. When the utra sound was done that gave the bad news, I heaard that nothing healed to the new replacement.
I want another opinion. I'm taking Percocet three times a day. I become immune to the meds after a year or so and the doctor inccreases the dosage. I'm 59. By the time I'm 70 if my liver holds out that long I can't imagine what strength narcotic I'll be on.
Can anyone recommend a surgeon that might help me out? I live in MI. My surgeon thought maybe the Cleveland Clinic??
