My problems began in July when I heard a rip in my right shoulder while bench pressing 225 pounds. After suffering for 2 months, an MRI confirmed a full thickness supraspinatus tear. Between the time of my MRI and my surgery I managed to damage the tendon even more. I will be at 6 weeks post op on Thursday. This has been a rough experience. For the first 4-5 days the pain was intense. The doctor told me my tear was much worse than the MRI indicated (I told him it would be) and that a good deal of work was needed to get everything back together so he understood the pain. At about 10 days things became tolerable but I am still in the sling. If I don’t wear it to sleep I am in a good deal of pain in the morning. I am supposed to start P.T next week. I have heard that will be very painful.
This past weekend I took the sling off to do some housecleaning. I didn’t lift anything and there was no “ow” moment but since then my shoulder has started to click again and the pain has been a bit worse. I have worn the sling continuously since then and the clicking seems to have subsided but the shoulder is very stiff and sore and I am concerned that I may have done some serious damage. Any thoughts/recommendations would be appreciated.
