Sherwin Slater, Monroe Township, NJ Shoulder replacement
I had fallen in my bedroom causing a massive tear in my left rotator cuff. It was so severe that it couldn't be repaired, necessitating a complete shoulder replacement masterfully done by Dr. Warren. Initially, I had little pain, but that changed after the anesthetic wore off, and I had some pain medication at home. Dr. Warren had me begin a six week course of outside physical therapy. On the days I did not have PT, I did similar exercises at home and gradually, the pain wore off. I now have about 80 percent function of my right shoulder.
