    The nhs is truly amazing and the new QE hospital is one of the best in the country, my shoulders now have 3 new big metal bits and lots of pins holding them together, two 6 hour operations and hopefully I'll be home for the grandprix :-)

    That's all he needs to know as he recovers from a 6 hour op. I assume this is going to give you increased mobility and less pain, so any small discomfort you may experience will be well worth it.

    Yeah sorry John, didn't mean to put a downer on things. I guess the ORIF will have a lot of positives in helping with mobility though.

    I had a seizure last April, it smashed and dislocated both shoulders 12 fractures in total, lefty was fixed in October and so far with physio has been very good got 80 percent movement right was fixed on Wednesday and needed more work as the clavicle had to be fractured to allow the humerus to fit back in place. The grand count was 26 screws, 3 plates, 12 staples and several bolts. So far pain is OK but the nerve block didn't work so they filled me full of morphine :-s I know it gets worse in the cold but 80% movement is better than what I had before opp.

    The claws are a bupa only extra :-)

    wow, that must have been a hell of a seizure. sounds like a little discomfort is a tiny price to pay to get you functional again.
    Take my hat off to you fella, you've had it pretty rough. It can only get better.

    I have arthritis in both big toes and I have a theory that it is change in atmospheric pressure that causes the pain. The barometer has been pretty steady for the past few days and I have been relatively pain free.

    Wow, glad to hear you're on the mend!

    Incidentally, why do all pics like this make me think that someone's let the school caretaker loose with some sheet metal and self tappers?
    Still, amazing what they can do to patch you up these days, absolutely astonishes me.

    I asked the surgeon if he could take a live picture and I get to see that next week should be interesting...

    I'm guessing if you went on a flight, the security gate metal detector would be beeping non-stop!
