Hi Nurse. I am sorry that you are in so much pain with your shoulder but it is wonderful news that the date has been set for the replacement surgery. I can understand though you wanting it to be now. Several years ago I was having issues with my one shoulder that had gotten so bad that I was having constant burning pain in my whole upper quadrant of my back, into my chest and armpit, down my arm and of course in my shoulder. I had to wait a few months before I could have surgery as I had another health issue to get through first. It was the most miserable, dark time of my life. When I woke up after surgery and all that pain was gone it truly felt like a miracle had happened for me. I hope that happens for you also. Take care, hang in there. It will be the end of August before you know it. Lisa
