The pain is now only when I sleep lol. I started stretching and strength exercise this week. I don’t think the pain can be much worse than when I first hurt it. It felt like my arm was ripped out of its socket and was dangling. Now I have a lot more range of motion and strength in it.

im not over doing it though. My friend did that before surgery and neither he or his doctor knew that he had bone Spurs that were acting like a serrated saw slicing everything every time he moved his arm. And it was a lot worse than they thought.

[mention=28731]Dunnie[/mention] how are you doing? How’s rehab?
 
I get surgery august 30th. Been doing pt for 6 weeks now. Feeling better
Surgery alleviated a lot of pain... I had a lot of pain due to the fact that my tear came as a result of calcium deposits ripping it over time. I also had a bone spur that needed to be shaved down. My biggest issue right now is lack of strength in the shoulder .. very hard to lift my arm straight up.

But PT is helping and I get to start using weights in a couple weeks.

The pain reduction has been awesome.

Omg dude, sorry to hear that! Jesus after 4 months, hope everything is ok. I don’t ever want to go through this again. The problem is habitual. As it feels better you start using it out of habit without thinking. I am catching myself at times.

I had to change my MRI apt. No way I can ly on my back for 30 minutes in that cigar tube. The only time it hurts is when I ly on my back. Stand up MRI Tuesday night.

 

range of motion is getting a lot better. But lots of crackling and popping sometimes (feels good, like cracking knuckles)

So my right shoulder , last 10 years , has been in and out of major pain. Now, the pain won’t go away.   It cracks ALL the time, hard to sleep, difficult to put a belt on as I can’t reach around my back.

Did you guys experience cracking of the shoulder like it was a knuckle??.

Im 59.

Oh yeah ... exactly ...

I am no doctor ... but i think that cracking my friend may be associated with age and arthritis ... get it checked out ...

Yes, the cracking like a knuckle and not being able to sleep on your back are tell tale signs. My surgeon told me (I’m 56) that you’re starting to get arthritis in there and that I’m too young for that. It has to be repaired and cleaned out.

the cracking is the tear and bone Spurs. He basically used anchors and screws to reattach my arm.

Last day in this ******* sling. Haven’t driven in a month. Have not had an alcoholic beverage in almost 5 weeks (that’s coming to an end soon lol) 

 

looking forward to tomorrow morning. My surgeon told me not to lift anything other than a few pounds. But try and move my arm  as much as possible. It feels good, no pain.

About 2 years out. My shoulder is almost what it was. Still kinda careful about doing flys and heavy weights. Was made clear by the orthopedica surgeon and PT guys you have to take it easy and be careful. There is no point to overdoing it becuse the risk is always there. And I don't anticipate entering Mr. Universe nor going to the combine so....

6 weeks and 1 day. Last Monday I was at 130 degrees with extending my right arm. This week 150 degrees. Can now sleep in bed on my back without hugging a pillow. God I’d pay any amount of money to be able to do that again.

Just started phase II of rehab last week. Feels good.

My shoulder already has more range of motion after surgery that before.

 

what about push-ups? No no?

Saw my doctor yesterday and he was pleasantly surprised by the range of motion and strength in the shoulder. He lifted restrictions lol but I’m not taking any chances. I start strengthening next week and I’m gonna wait until the next time I see him (January) before I feel comfortable lifting anything without damaging it.

I can finally sleep on my back pain free. So I am catching up on 6 months of not being able to sleep :)

2 years out of surgery, talk to the orthopedist from time to time. Basic idea is even with surgery, PT and exercise,  the injury hastens joint and muscular deterioration. Never going back to 100%, and there is gonna be pain.
