Rehab Is Tough!!
Ok, I'll start and maybe someone else will share. As of Tuesday, Dec. 15th, I am 6 weeks post op. I had spurs and 2 large tears in my rotator cuff. I did the sling thing for 6 weeks and have just started strength training this week. I have had 3 knee replacements and this surgery is by far the most painful of any. I can hardly raise my arm and have constant pain. I have confidence in my physical therapist, but it is very difficult to not get discouraged with the slow progress. I should have done my homework before surgery- I was thinking I would be well on my way to normalcy in 6 weeks. Now I realize I am just getting started with the REAL rehab part. Sure could use some encouraging words from someone who might be further along or even completely recovered!!
