    I had rotater cuff repair, torn bicep, Bone spur, sugery 4 months ago.  About a month ago my left arm, non surgery arm started hurting quite a bit  also my wrist.   I felt the same as you, is it spreading?   Turns  out since I was overusing  the left arm, I developed a calcium deposit and my wrist was also over used and acted up from a break I had many years ago.   Your other pain cou,d be from  over use.  Have you ever tried a cortisone injection?    That helped me.

    I feel so sorry for you I have had an attempted rotator cuff repair but it was too ragged I had a tidy up Debrinement a bursectomy and shaved a bit of bone to make more space for the cuff.  Total failure I am in so much pain now This was 6 months ago  I am having to try and sleep sitting up  I cant lie on either side or on my back  I had some Cortisone  put in last week for the 2nd time  The swelling has gone down and I would say the arm and shoulder at rest is a bit better.  My appt for the Consultant has been brought forward to next Wednesday  and I have no idea what is going to happen  He did speak about a patch but said it could fail  I got some tramadol from the GP last Friday but I only take it at night in the hope I get some improved sleep  Have been getting about 2 and a half hours in two lots so about an hour 15 mins twice That has been the case for over 3 weeks now.  Not to have any physio meantime   Worried about what is going to happen  Just know I can't carry on as things are  I hope you find some help soon  I did ask if the tear could have extended but I didn't get an answer to that
