Had some damage myself years ago. PT seemed to take care of it, but it took a long time. Learned to do lots of things left handed and my right in a sling.

Anymore, the only thing in a sling is my butt when I was back to the missus.

Feel for you. Had my left done two times and now I have a full thickness tear with complete detachment of the tendon from the humeral head. Not good.

Seen my surgeon two weeks ago after the MRI, and he was impressed that I went this long. But after weighing the options of a third surgery I guess I'm going to do my best to live with it. The first time was a partial tear, and I got a year and a half out of it. The second was almost three, and now for the last year it's been.....tolerable, barely! All depends on what the day brings. 

My problem is being in the wheelchair for 29 years, things are wearing out, and not lasting like it would with a WP, (walking person) so you should do good. Follow your therapist's direction to a T. You may be ready to strangle them at times, but a good one is worth every penny.

Hurts like the dickens when they start the range a motion after your arm has been demobilized for 6 weeks. You won't think your arm should move in those directions anymore, but they will, eventually. And don't lax on the home work they give you, lot of ice in your drink, I mean on your shoulder to help with inflammation. And as said earlier, take your time, and be carefull walking where it's slippery. A fall in that direction isn't good.

Enough of my whimpering and sounding like Mr. know it all. I hate people like that :hitting_self_roller: good luck, and will be saying a prayer for a fast recovery.

Glad to hear its all turning out well!

 

A buddy of mine in his late 50s had a knee replacement.  He didn't follow what the PT said to do.  Didn't show up for half his therapy appointments and now he has only about 65% Range of motion.  He went to the Dr to complain and he said, thats not on me.  If you would of went to therapy like you were supposed to you would have the 90-95% I told you, possibly even better, but since you did that its not on me.

Lowell, did you get away with it arthroscopically, or full on cut?

Good looking harness.

Hope all is well.

He scoped it nine years ago for the pinched nerve.  This time he started with the scope, but opened it up for the repair.  Go back in two weeks for follow up.  ~~  Lowell

Lowell, I hear yer pain. I've been putting off anothe repair ( the third ) on my right shoulder for a decade now.... But some of those sweet eye candy PT's might just make it all worth it !

 

Be well, and regain as much motion as you can.

Glad you're feeling good about the surgery. When I had my hip done they gave me a spinal and I talked with the surgeon during the whole procedure, very interesting. He explained what he was doing and seemed to get a kick out of me being interested in what was going on. We had butchered a beef the week before, and when I told him it smelled like his bone saw was dull, he just laughed.

What?

Hell if I ain't sleeping, it ain't happening!

I don't want to know nothing going on.
