It doesn’t seem that long since I was saying Good Riddance 2015 and here we are again seeing off yet another year. (Click on the link for a reminder of last year’s post). However in some respects its been a very long year as I feel as though I’ve spent the whole year either preparing for or recovering from, shoulder surgery. At least can I start 2017 with two new shoulders, although whether or not that is the end of it remains to be seen as the left one still hurts more than the more recently replaced right one.

So this year I can raise a glass (with whichever hand I choose) to toast the New Year. I wish you all the very best of health and good luck and I will update again after my follow-up appointment in March.

Thank you all once again for your support, please feel free to contact me if you have any experience of your replacement surgery which you would like to include in this blog.
