My case was degenerative and required decompression of the ac joint and clavicle. I had 3 tears. Supraspinatus and bicep were complete and infraspinatus was partial. I was having progressive pain over the past year and came to the point I was unable to work. The first 3 wks after surgery was almost unbearable due to pain and little sleep sitting up in recliner. I have a sling with immobilizer. Physical therapy started 4 days after surgery with passive range of motion and has become more aggressive now. I will take sling and immobilizer off next wk (6wks) and start more active exercises. I had no pain with physical therapy until after at first that was better the next day. Now I have pain WITH physical therapy that is tolerable but after for the rest of the day and the next day i have went back to taking pain pills around the clock. Day 3 is good with no pain until the next session. I am just wondering what has been your experiences. Trying real hard not to keep my head up. Dreading the next 7wks of physical therapy. At what point did it get better for you?
