I'm not sure if this has been covered before. If so, I apologize. My doctor has suggested shoulder replacement for my right arm. As a temporary solution, I received a cortisone shot about three months ago. I'm in my training regime for the upcoming season and I have a big problem pulling back my bow. It freaking sucks honestly. I was wondering if anyone on here has had shoulder replacement. I'm curious what the recovery time was and what kind of mobility you had afterwards. Could you pull back your bow without any issues? My bow is set at 70 lbs. They have a machine at the gym that simulates this movement and I can't full draw 50 pounds. The thought of my archery days being over is unsettling.
