Had surgery at the end of March. (Biceps tendon tear, labrum fraying, Subscapularis superior tear, complete supraspinatus tear, bursa resection, & subacromial decompression). In week 5 now and am certain I have torn my non-surgery shoulder as well, which happens to be my dominant sports arm & hurts more than my surgery arm did before (& after) surgery.
I live alone, but have had some help on and off during recovery, which helped me avoid further use of my non-surgery arm. The shoulder is definitely getting worse, including popping, pain, etc. and is so bad I cannot fix or even wash my own hair. My shoulder it's self that they did surgery on his not been approved for pt and has continued severe pain in my elbow (ulnar entrapment, Carple, and cubital tunnel), which adds fuel to this frustrating situation.
I can't help but feel like I am a fall or a simple movement away from having almost no use of my non-surgery arm as well. Suggestions greatly appreciated and this recovery is something no one should have to do alone. Thanks.
