I had a complete shoulder replacement 5 months ago, right at the beginning doc said I may never work again, I'm 57 years old

On a post open Dr visit my dr. Said it again which motivated me even more to get better but after 12 weeks of physical therapy my frozen shoulder is not getting any better, I can still barely lift my arm and it's my dominant arm, last Dr appt, he said he is afraid of trying manipulation because my bones are soft and he is worried about breaking my arm, he said if these last 4 week's of pt don't work I would need to think about retirement. ...

Is anyone here receiving ssdi for frozen shoulder. .?

    No the specialist didn't do the 1st surgery, I didn't have the option to look up the 1st doctors experience, I was taken by ambulance after my dirt bike accident to the hospital that he is the orthopedic at,

    But I was able to do some research here lately and it seems his father a highly regarded Orthopedic has retired and he has taken over his father's practice.....funny thing also is he looks exactly like his dad, just 50 years younger...
