Glad you are doing better. !! The shoulder willbe much better.. Suzanne

Oh good, read below that you will be in a sling for weeks. That is good, you appear to be having the lowest level of surgery. Get a long pillow or one of those V shaped ones to help you sleep after the op. The arm will need supporting so that you don't hurt the newly operated on shoulder.
Sorry to say, cuddling in bed will be reduced on your return home.
Plenty of experience, DH has had 4 shoulder ops and the last seems to have been the best. The first two were experimental ones whilst in the Army.
He also has a small pillow on his lounge chair to support the forearm - but that need will depend on your height in the chair.
Follow your surgeons plan for your recovery and make sure that the physio is experienced in shoulders. Not all are..
DH loved the hydrotherapy.
Good luck

Yea! I am so glad you are doing better and your handsome hubby is taking good care of you. I hope all goes well with the shoulder surgery. Be sure to take your pain pills.

Good for you!! After both hips, both knees & a shoulder I can do so many things I couldn't! Please listen to your physical therapist & do ALL he/she says with that shoulder! Won't kid you...the hip doesn't hurt as much as the shoulder...but so worth it in the end. Keep remembering that! And tell that man how much you love him every day! He has no clue what all he's gonna have to do for you for a month or so!

Thank you I have been told the shoulder is very pain full but I will listen to the therapist the shoulder has to be in a sling for weeks, I am a 63 year old ( in my mind I am 32 ) it's the body that's not working but my mind is , I am going on a Big Cruise after I get over the op so have to do a lot of sewing when I a fit ?????
