Still In Pain

Hello all.....
     I have experienced this awful rotator cuff surgey and its been 6 months of therapies and all. My arm, shoulder and neck on my right are still way off. I just had a docs visit a few days ago and my ortho is sending me for a MRI once again. He did do new x-rays again in his office and they are ok he said. I thought that myself. The problem is not my bones.......  its the tendons and ligaments and nerves.....    I know that something is wrong!!!  Maybe adhesive capsulitis!!!!!  Still have pain, swelling and limited range??????  I know its nuts......  Soo after my tales, does any one have any stories of their surgery????? Nee your input... PLease... Thanks.......

I am 3 weeks out past surgery, still lots of pain in shoulder and arm. I have not started therapy, AM over 65 and it is very expensive.$30 a day, however I am doing my exercise at home 3 times a day

I am just 3 weeks out-very little pain and in fact I am typing two handed and probably use my arm too much. All I can say is if you don't do PT at least 2 times a week PLUS 2-4 times a day at home you will have issues again. PT hurts like crazy at first but does get better and is worth it. I don't ever want to have to wear this stupid sling again!

Great for you. That is wonderful
