I guess I was lucky when I had my meniscus cut out about 10 years ago. I was walking on it in two days, but it took a year to fully recover. I haven’t had a problem since. Wife had shoulder surgery this past October to shorten all the soft tissues in her arm so it would stop falling out of her shoulder. She was too limber.

It slowed her down, but she was better one-handed in the kitchen that I was with two. LOL
She’s pretty much recovered but is not suppose to raise that arm above her waist—and her left (surgical) arm is now shorter than her right.

I suspect your wife will do fine… she’ll need some time to heal… and she’ll probably become a little impatient about it all. Wish her the best.

I’ve heard that when we get to this age this is the type of stuff we talk about?
