    Polio and torn Rotator Cuff plus no Cartilage
      Hello All, My name is Doug I am 53 Years old, had polio in my left arm since I was 6, had surgery on my Right arm last March to relieve pain, Doctor comes out and says there is no Cartilage left (Bone on Bone) and full of Arthritis, and says good luck after installing 4 anchors to repair the Rotator cuff also.  After not getting better went to a specialist another MRI found out the Rotator Cuff repair completely failed.  Now I have 2 very very limited arms, Doctors say reverse replacement is all that available, I sure like what I have been reading about regenerating cartilage but how long are we talking for shoulders.
    Thanks Everyone
