Surgery today

Letting you know that Legs (aka Linda) is expecting to have her first and long-delayed reverse total shoulder replacement today. I'm sure she would value the presence of long-standing VA friends in her pocket - although where that is on a theatre gown is questionable.

Legs - we are with you all the way!!!

    Very best wishes

    Hi @crinkly

    thank you for letting us know.

    @legs got all my fingers and toes crossed for you today, hope it all goes well. I would also be interested in hearing how you get on as I am due to have this surgery sometime next year.

    Giant hugs

    Legs I am in your pocket 100%

    I wish you all the very best with today's surgery.

    As you know lucy had her shoulder 'done' not so long ago when she was 19 and is still very very happy with the outcome. She can lift her arm above her head 🙂

    You will do just fine I know because you have been here before having surgeries and recovering, doing your physio.

    Lots of love and ((()))

    Nothing heard yet, Toni, but Lindalegs was due to go home today (Friday) so I anticipate hearing from her over the weekend. If i do so before she posts on the forum herself, I will add an update. Will probably post under a better heading as this one is too vague and the edit time limit has long passed.

    Sorry for my slow response - for some bizarre reason the forum rejected my password and then wouldn't accept a new one. Will stay logged in as a way of avoiding another hassle with the system!
