Hello. I am 8 weeks out from shoulder decompression surgery. At 5 weeks post op I had a horrible pain when trying to wash my face. I stood up and held my shoulder and in about 30 seconds I felt something move. At my first follow up the Dr did a 2nd MRI. The Dr office called, said "MRI was generic... no surgical fix or injection can help ...." A few days later I picked up the MRI which reads I have a protruding suture anchor and a partially torn tendon above the protruding anchor. I am concerned how I can rehab when moving my arm will push the anchor into my tendon and cause more damage. I believe what I felt at 5 weeks post op was the tendon releasing from the pinch of the protruding anchor. it is 10 times more painful than before the surgery with 1/10th of the motion.
I picked up the films and attached the anchor.
