Well today it has been 26 weeks 1/2 year since I had my surgery and I have pretty much full movement but still have pain more like a tightness but if I try to lift anything over 10 LBs it hurts. Still doing the exercises that they gave me and that does seem to help a little. The pain is nowhere near what it was before the surgery but i did have more strength back then. The doc did say with my age and as bad as it was that it may be over a year before I feel better.
