So this is the thing -
I have dislocated my shoulder 3 times in three years and after a year of waiting MRI sans and arthoscopes I have finally been gien the option of an operation which will happen in 6-9 months (and mess up my IM CH plans)
anyway the decision of operation isnt so simple.
Option 1 - keyhole surgery, less invasive, little scarring but 75% success rate
Option 2 - open surgery, scarring,slightly longer recovery but 90-95% success rate
My initial instinct is to go for Option 2 as I do to go through another night in casualty on Morphine if I can help it.
however to make it a little more complicated option 1 whilst has a lower success rate will be done by the top surgeon at the hospital whereas option 2 could be done by any old crack head who hasstolen a surgeons gown (no disparage against the medical profession intended)
Any thoughts anyone or does anyone know of anyone who has done the same thing with success or not?
