My shoulder has been screwed since July and probably will remain so for about 9 more months as nerves take an inch a month to heal. As far as I know that's the only complication other than the coumadin they put you on which is not part of the procedure, but rather the 'aftercare'. Obviously you don't want a bad bleed when your blood is thin. So it's not risk free, just very low risk. My shoulder is almost certainly not going to heal all the way, but it should somewhat.
