[Deleted User] Posts: 0Good morning Karen and welcome!
Sorry, unfortunately I can't take your worries away . But distraction could do the trick. At least a little bit, I guess. Well- it does for me. Sometimes. Just try it out!
Have a nice day!0

welcome to the forum, I have had no surgeries so cannot advise you but I am sure there will be some-one along soon who can. I have OA in my spine and Psoriasis.
I am a fairly new member but have found other members very caring and full of good advice. We also like to have a laugh at ourselves.
I wish you well with your up coming surgery,
dreamdaisy Member Posts: 31,520Hello, I like the seasonal name. I am afraid I cannot help at all, I am so far shoulder-trouble-free and greatly appreciate that. I know of some who have had shoulder troubles and ops but, as they haven't posted in ages, I guess they were mended and so don't need us any more. I always view surgery as a positive thing, it is designed to help and it usually does. I wish you well and we will support you as best we can, OK? You have found an empathetic and sympathetic audience on here. DD0
