What It is Like To outlive Rotator Cuff Surgery – My Story
Diseases, Disorders return false;” />See results Week 9 Celebration!!
Two weeks ago having accomplished post op week 7, I was very disappointed to learn I had to endure “The Sling And that i” for a minimal of two more weeks. The Sling and i have been contemplating filing for divorce at that time! I simply hit the tolerance wall one day for no obvious cause and it was all I might don’t to just “sling it.”
Nicely, today was my postop week 9 checkup with the surgeon. He was very happy with how all the pieces is looking. He informed me I may really begin shifting my arm in any route (woo hoo!!) and added more workouts for the PT of us. This was trigger for an enormous celebration! I settled, however, for driving dwelling without the sling on and pumping my own gasoline for the first time in over two months! I additionally chopped up a bunch of veggies to make some homemade vegetable soup. All in all it was pretty exciting!
The one restriction on me hairdos for round fat faces now could be that I am not allowed to elevate anything. I can dwell with that for awhile!
He also gave me the good news that in three more weeks I might be allowed to start strengthening workout routines! It will be nice to be allowed to do something more proactive than simply resting my shoulder!
Bodily Therapy With The new Exercises
Had my first PT with these yesterday – delayed because I spent a couple of days in the hospital resulting from a cellulitis infection in my leg. All the workout routines felt nice, induced no ache, only a sort of weird feeling as a result of the muscles had not been moved in so long.
In two more weeks we get to begin strengthening workouts – I’m very excited about that! Give me some work and let me get this arm again!

Hi Sheila..I know you might be nicely past your process now and it sounds like every part turned out nice. I simply wished to praise you in your nice attitude and say thanks for sharing. I fell like a klutz three weeks in the past and had surgical procedure 1 week in the past for a partial shoulder replacement and cuff tear. I’m miserable and I have never stopped tearing up and the way things are going I will probably be a giant child all the 8+ weeks! I’m in a Don Joy immobilizer brace with an enormous foam block between my arm and my physique. I’ve never been in a straight jacket (actually, I haven’t!) but I guess it feels much like this. It’s constructed with 98% Velcro which tends to poke by in the most painful (and private) locations. I HATE Velcro now! Even essentially the most comfy place to sit/sleep I’ve found (recliner) leaves much to be desired in any place. I am additionally plugged in to a cooler system that circulates ice water. The “cape” with the cooling chambers needs to be placed on with assist and elastic bandage-sort fasteners. I hate elastic bandages now too! 🙂 each time I recline all the things rides up in an try to strangle me.. Though I’ve never been in a prison cell (really I have not ) I am pretty sure I can be extra comfortable in a 6 x 6 jail cell. I am no stranger to ache. I’ve survived cancer, have lived with fibromyalgia for 15+ years, and have disc degeneration within the lumbar and cervical spine, and arthritis, most pronounced in my hips. I thought I knew what pain was.. However now I do know the pain scale really goes a lot greater than 10. And naturally now all of the docs (even my surgeon) will get squeamish in case you request ache medicine refills. Thanks DEA! And avenue drug customers! Now it seems I am developing lymphedema as I had node biopsies in the bothered arm. It appears I’ve such a long road forward I really feel depleted and whooped. Do not know what, other than prayers, and junk food, goes to get me by means of this. Thanks for listening.. I haven’t shed one tear while penning this submit. WOOT!

Reading your descriptive post is making me feel a bit higher. I am having rotator cuff restore surgery in 2 days for two full width, full length tears on my dominant arm. Very nervous about getting by way of day by day activities with out my dominant arm. I too have long hair and it is curly in addition. I am going to look like the Lion King!
