O A in shoulder. I Am new.

giannagianna Posts: 4
I have been diagnosed with OA in my shoulder, which has caused a tear in the ligament. At my last consultant appointment it was suggested I have keyhole surgery to repair this, but that it may not work, which would result in having an operation. Has anyone out there had this keyhole surgery and if so how successful was it. At the moment the pain in my shoulder and arm is not so bad during the day, but does keep me awake at night.[/quote]

    Hello Gianna
    If any of our forum users have had this surgery I'm sure they'll reply to you but remember everyone's experience of surgery is different and their view of 'success' is individual. What is important is to ask your surgeon what he thinks the outcome will be for you and what it will mean for you if you have to have the operation.
    Best wishes
