I've been through 3 surgeries on my left (dominant) shoulder. Surgery 1 was for labrum repair. Surgery 2 was for bicep tendinosis (sp). Surgery 3 was for FS adhesive capsulitis release all within 1 yr. I have 2 and a half months to go till I'm a yr out of my last surgery. I'm still struggling with pain and discomfort. I still have a lot of inflammation especially after doing my job for 4 hrs. My Dr just keeps telling me it should all subside as time goes on and he's hopeful I'll be able to get to a functional range of motion but it's still to be determined until 1 yr after my last surgery. He thinks I'll be able at some point to be able to do my job for 8 hrs but also in the next breath says I most likely won't be able to make it to retirement from my job. At this point I feel as if I'm worst off then before the first surgery. And now my right shoulder is starting to bother me from over use in the past 2 yrs dealing with my left shoulder. I'm getting so frustrated with all of this. I'm feeling like I'm going to be dealing with this for the rest of my life. This is more of a venting post cuz no one I know has been through this. What are some of your experiences with long term effects from shoulder surgery?
