ROTATOR CUFF REPAIR

my wife has had problems for years.now having to wrap shoulder,can hear loud popping. Has anyone had this surgery?
Wife was born with right arm handicap, so she's worried about surgery.Think to far gone for rotator repair,think they will do a smooth repair. info would be welcomed.

I had a bursecomy and cuff surgery 2 years ago on my right side...worst thing about was the recovery pain. It took 9 months before thing were without pain. The most humiliating thing was not being able to reach my backside...but there are ways with that.

Looking at having the same done on the left...seeing surgeon on the 22nd to discuss my options.

Mine was more routine than Jon's. I was immobilized, more or less for 6 months.

I don't remember that much pain but probably mine was less torn up than his to start with. It is great now, stronger than my un-repaired but injured in HS football right side.

I drove after a month or so with the sling on but if I have the right side repaired shifting gears will be problematic.

Sounds like one more thing you'd be wise to address sooner than later.....

If us old guys were vehicles, we'd all get junked .

If I were a car I'd be a rat rod with the same old looking exterior with many new parts you cannot see doing the work.

Talking

I hear you ! .

Titanium is good stuff along with the self tapping screws .

One of the plates in my arm has been removed, t'other is permanent like the big one in my neck ~ it's been a while since I went through a metal detector, that's always fun .

Post Major Surgery

Ow, that doesn't sound nice but once healed I bet she'll be tickled pink with it .

My Sweet is suffering rheumatoid arthritis in one leg, it's areal problem and she's not doing much about it .

I gave her *one* oxycodone pill the other night and she said 'it's not helping' but her pain and worry lines smoothed out and she passed out on the sofa....

I hate that stuff but I also hate my Sweet suffering .

Thats fantastic, and pretty amazing for such an operation.

I tore mine about 9 months ago, pretty badly along with significant tendon damage (taking out the damn trash nonethess). I was offered surgery and physical therapy, recovery of 12+ months overall. Option B was to wait it out and see what happens. Mostly fine now, still some grinding but much improved, and my tendons and muscles are mostly healed. Thank goodness, I cant imagine trying to pay for surgery, MRIs and 12 months of 3x a week PT even with insurance.

Before the surgery mine got a lot better and I could do many things but pain prevented other movements.
