I too had a latissimus transfer. It relieved some pain from fatigue. I have NO more ROM than I had before this surgery. I have had 3 in total. I do not have arthritis, so a reverse shoulder replacement is out of the ?. Thank Goodness! I have read that this lat surgery is less than successful for women. I'm a 50 yr. old male. I have zero external rotation. I find myself medicating alot at night. I have also heard from other people with shoulder replacement that it was a blessing to have done to releve the pain. The shoulder is such a complex joint to recover after trauma. Mine was due to trauma. I wish you a pain free life!

Hi Maisy...I too am considering a reverse shoulder replacement. How did yours work out? I certainly would love to hear. I have had a hemi replacement, but the prothesis isnt in the joint, so this could be my other option .Hannah1

From article Reining in the PainI am contemplating an Inverse (Reverse) Shoulder Replacement vs. a Shoulder Fusion. My rotator cuff is gone and I have a lot of arthritis. I am 47 years old. I have already had 3 operations - one of which was a Latissimus Dorsi Transfer where they take the Lat from your back and put it on shoulder to work instead of the Rotator Cuff - My LDTransfer failed. Anyone else in a similar position?Maisy
