Although not the best news, this surgery will give you your quality of life back. I have had my RTS’s since I was 42. I can do more now than I ever could before. The therapy was focused and I have more range of motion now than I did with my anatomical shoulders. I workout 3-4 times a week. I bought a Bowflex for easy and smooth resistance. It’s much different than the mountain of free weights I used to throw around. Getting a full nights sleep has done wonders for my mental state as well. One thing I have noticed, I may have lost a couple of my interests due to my RTS’s, but I know for a fact I gain 2 new ones for every one I lost.Just got back from my orthopod and found out I need a complete shoulder joint replacement, and not only that, a reverse replacement where they replace the ball with a new socket and vice versa. My rotator cuff has somehow been destroyed and the switch allows the deltoid muscles to takeover. I should get about 70-80% back as regards strength. Not really good news, especially since I broke my upper arm bone a year ago.
