I had my shoulder surgery on Tuesday afternoon. I asked the doctor if I can knit and crochet. He told me that is great therapy. I am not in much pain, so that is good. It's wierd having one hand.

I had a shoulder replacement on April 18th. I am not having problems knitting at all. Unfortunately, other tasks are giving me problems. I am right handed, and it was my right shoulder that was replaced. Happy healing!

Just don't do it for too long try for fifteen minutes at a time if that's too much try for ten I know the doctor said it was okay but if they don't knit I don't think know how many muscles and tendons are really involved in knitting and they do get sore. I am not a nurse or doctor but have had this problem before so it's just my opinion. Wishing you a fast recovery.

Great to hear you are doing well and not experiencing much pain after your surgery, and also great that you are allowed to knit and crochet. Hoping all continues to progress nicely during your recovery.

I had surgery in Oct for two bone spurs and two tears. I found that the muscles from my wrist to my elbow started to hurt after ten minutes of knitting. Had to slowly work up to longer times.

Good luck.

I'm happy you, luree, are on the road to recovery and your doctor has approved knitting therapy!

Others should be aware that each case is different; don't compare your own surgery to the OP's. The shoulder is complex and "shoulder surgery" can take many different forms--- with varied 'recovery' protocols. Please ask your own surgeon what activities are approved for you.

I know how you feel. I lost my left side due to a stroke but to make matters worse i fell injuring my left hip and found out 6 weeks later that i had dislocated my left shoulder but didn't know due to the stroke. I still have trouble with my left side but have managed to find a way to knit. Have difficulty sometimes when knitting as no matter how hard i try still have problems when changing to start a new row. But not giving up my knitting for anything, so i know how it feels having not only one had but i have one side

Slow and steady will get you there. Overdo it and you will know about it! I find I stiffen up over night. Still managing with just some Tylenol as needed. Trying to go without it as much as possible. Frustrating as I am used to doing everything at warp speed!
