Had mine done about 5 years ago. It was messed up, one of the three muscles holding the bone into the socket was detached. Some cutting and scrapping and titanium wire permanently holding the muscles back together and very good results. Of course I don't now do all the rough things I did back when I was full of piss and vinegar.
I hear you dude, Doc told me about the same thing. At my age (72), he said I won't have the same movement in that arm as I did before I tore it up. He did say that if I behave myself and don't force the issue, do my exercises and stay out of the garage, I'll be "almost" as good as I was. Getting pretty good at brushing my teeth with my left hand, don't poke myself in the eye or nose as much as I did three weeks ago!!! Doc does 4 of these Operations a day, 4 days a week, thinking his wife also has a Mercedes!

What's the pups name?
Her name was Daisy... Lost her to Cancer about a year ago...Hard to get over her.... very hard.
I have owned this for quite a few years but it has been resting in the barn... Will get it out on the road again.

...........I feel your pain, Jeff. I lost my little Dachshund 18 years ago now and I still occasionally have dreams about her. Don't really care if someone might think I'm a "cupcake" about it. They work their way into your heart and never leave.

I have had both shoulders done. Wonderful results, but recovery was not quick. If one goes bad, I would not hesitate to seek a redo. First done in 2005
Been there, done that, and again and again both sides since 1988.
Now I don't even want to look at a "breaker bar".
To keep the thread relevant heres a shot of my in between shoulder surgery projects.
Man, you guys have got some sweet rides. Thanks for the photos. Snowman
Your car turns my crank, outstanding.
Thanks! I daily drive it including taking the kids to school and it can get down the 1/8 mile pretty decent too! I might do a build thread for the new combination I have in the works for it
Somehow didn’t know about that thread, thanks!
Both home built.............
