I've had release surgery 2 was ago and he found a tear that was not seen on the MRI, which I understand is not unusual. But the level of pain post surgery is much worse than I ever expected and more often than not takes 2 pills to get enough relief instead of one. By now I was hoping to not need heavy drugs to get through the day and the night. I have been going to PT every other day and doing the exercises at home. Even so, I cannot lift my arm out in front of me, as in picking up a coffee cup, or lift it to the side hardly at all. The therapist cannot get it to go there either, which worries us both. Has anyone experienced these thing after surgery? Am I possibly looking at another surgery? Anyone had a second release on the same arm? I stumbled on this forum by accident and really appreciate the practical advice and sharing of experiences as well as the feeling if hope. Thank you all for sharing.
