I have keyhole surgery for a tear to the rotator cuff Unfortunately my Surgeon was unable to repair the tear as it was very frayed. He did a bursectomy ASD I think it is called and really cleaned all the joint up. There was a lot of inflammation in the joint. Unfortunately although I thought initially it was going to be an improvement in the long term it has failed. I have been in more pain than ever and reallly very limited in what I can do I am having to try to sleep sitting up in bed. I can't lift with my right hand kettle cup of coffee etc. Having to hoover and iron etc with my left hand which is not easy. I had another Cortisone injection the second 3 weeks ago and that has improved my pain somewhat but still a good deal of pain at night.
I saw my surgeon last week and he asked me what I would like him to do I am unsure and said what can you do He had spoken about a patch at the last appointment. He has suggested Surpa scapular nerve block a series of 3 injections. Does anyone have any experience of this. I would appreciate any information anyone can give me Thanks
