I did PT for 3 years before I decided on the surgery and plan on following my PT regimen to the T for a speedy recovery. Thank you all.
My wife just got cleared to go back to work after hers. She did the same thing, went to PT for years. She had the work done in Jan went back to work about 3 weeks ago. Yours looks a lot more invasive than hers was.
She only had a frayed labrum and the underside of her acromion was cleaned up a little. You had a torn rotator cuff; there are not a lot of blood vessels in tendons. Did you tear one of the 4 stabilizing muscles or a tendon?
I hope you have a speedy recovery and remember chicks dig cool scars. I think I would tell the ladies its a scar from a knife fight with some gang bangers. But thats just me
Good luck I cant belive the diffrence it has made in the wifes ability to lift things over her head.LL! Yes, I had a rotator cuff tear, tendonitis, and some bone spur taken out ... injured it a couple of times or so a few years back. I think the worst was when I slipped off the ice and try to break my fall - would have been better off falling on my arse. It was never the same then and any above the shoulder motion hurts ... I plan on going back to work on Monday and see how it goes.
I had shoulder surgery in February. PT officially ended in May. I'm doing exercises given to me by the therapist every other day. It was my shooting shoulder to boot. Bone spurs had my rotator cuff locked up. I've got about 95% of movement back. Of all things, stick with the PT. At 63 these things are just no fun.
