Anna Lea, I am trying to find out if any masters swimmers have had a
total shoulder replacement and, if so, what the result was regarding
function of the shoulder as related to swimming. I am facing this
surgery in mid-May. What was originally scheduled as right shoulder
rotator cuff repair surgery now is headed toward total shoulder
replacement because the tears and degeneration are more severe than
first diagnosed. I would love to be able to contact a swimmer who has
had this replacement surgery.

Give my very best to your friend. I hope it works out so that she can return to swimming and enjoy it once more.
