Weakness after surgery
My father had shoulder surgery 1 1/2 years ago, prior to the surgery, he was very active, lives on a farm and did everything himself.  After the surgery (he was told he had arthritis very bad in his shoulder), he is suffering from severe muscle weakness and can barely walk (he now "shuffles") occasionally he almost runs and we have to catch him.  He falls on a regular basis, we don't know if it is because he can't pick up his feet or if he loses his balance, I feel it is for a lack of balance.  Not many tests can be done on him because 24 years ago he had back surgery and had many nerves in his lower back severed.  What could make a person go into surgery fine and come out with such a lack of muscle.  What can we have him tested for, this is really depressing him.  Thanks for any help.
