Just spoken to my Mum on the phone as she had a Doctors appointment for the results of the x-ray she'd had on her shoulder. I'd said how well mine were after my steroid injections & as she suffers badly with her right shoulder her Doc sent her to have it checked out. Turns out that the degeneration is so bad, he is referring her for an appointment with an Orthopedic Consultant & told her it will probably need replacing. Poor lamb, she's already had both hips & one knee replaced so at the age of nearly 89 she is not sure whether she would want to go through with another op. The good thing is that apart from the arthritis, the Doctor says that she is very healthy for her age.
