    Yes, I have had setbacks that lasted weeks (with this recent surgery and the rotator cuff repair I had 5 years ago on the other shoulder), which makes sense since the inflammation that is likely...

    Surgeon says everything looks good. I told him about my pain when I bring my elbow above shoulder height and turn my wrist so my thumb is pointing down (like I am looking at my wrist watch). He did...

    Thanks for great post! Lots of good info here. Yes I had full thickness tears on both shoulders, and bicep tendonesis on both shoulders. First surgery required 7 anchors, the second one needed 5...

    Sorry to hear that.... I am at almost 6 months. and I notice every now and then a deep burn in my shoulder. I wonder if it is nerve endings repairing themselves? Maybe scar tissue being stretched...

    It's been about 20 weeks since my 2nd surgery (my other shoulder was done 5 years ago) . My surgeon released me to start lifting again (LIGHTLY) at 13 weeks since (as he said) I am ahead of schedule...

    Absolutely! Those are all the typical rotator cuff strengthening exercises. And I agree, always AFTER working out. Before working out just warm the shoulder up. I am at 14 weeks out from surgery, and...

    The pain has definitely been less this time. But to be clear, the dead arm went away after 24 hours, but I guess the nerve block worked for a bunch of days after that. Regarding the distal bicep...
