I am 9 weeks post op, and wondering when is this Pain ever going to stop! 2 deep tears in rotator cuff and my bicep was frayed like a rope so it was cleaned up and reattached, and bone spur shaved down, arthritis also.
I am so glad to read other people having the same issues as me, as I have been feeling like I have done something wrong to still have so much pain.
I am 65 years old and have always been very active, I miss lifting weights I miss being able to reach above my head and I really miss sleep!
I actually hurt both my arms at the same time over a year ago, carrying a heavy picnic table, the other person dropped his end pulling both my arms forward and down at the same time.
Now my left arm hurts almost as bad as my operative arm and I am afraid I will have to have surgery on it as well, the doctor would not have me get an MRI on the left one yet, frankly, I don't think I can go through this again. The pain, the anxiety and misery of this surgery has been horrible.
I have been in PT since 4 weeks post op, had to cut it down from 3 times a week to 2 times a week and will have to go to once a week due to the cost of it. I am doing PT exercises at home.
