Completely Did In My Rotator Cuff


I've posted in some other threads about my rotator cuff issues and solving it with careful use and PT. Well I just erased all that. Can't even lift the arm.

And what construction task was it from? None!

Friend's 40th birthday, a group of us went to a ball field and did an impromptu home run derby.

Ya big dummy.

I thought I did mine in a couple of years ago, and it scared the crap out of me, even at my age. Don't do that.

Get better.

Re: Completely Did In My Rotator Cuff


Last year at this time I thought I finished off my already bad shoulder chipping out tile for a few days. Couldnt even steer the truck.

It passed. Yeah I have major sleep discomfort and could probably use a surgery but.........you can be surprised how much you will bounce back after a few days of babying it.

Good luck

Re: Completely Did In My Rotator Cuff


Had my second one done two weeks ago.
Bone spurs, and partial tears in the rotator cuff and biceps tendon.

Only one week in the sling because they used collagen patches instead of sutures. I don't really get it, but I did it.

The exercises still hurt like hell. And unlike my full tear, only 6 weeks of PT.

Full tear was 6 weeks in a sling and 5 months of PT.

Just started PT today. Hurt like hell.

OK, you do get SOME sympathy for forgetting you aren't Superman any more, but that's it.

According to doctor or self-diagnosis?

Here's hoping it bounces back without surgery. PT encourages NOT doing surgery.

That's probably true. Might have been throwing them in when I was fielding, that's the motion that always hurt with the shoulder issue.

Self diagnosis so maybe it's not as bad as I fear.

Re: Completely Did In My Rotator Cuff


Apparently you can't identify a specific action where it happened all of a sudden with sharp pain.

Good news, just some rehab. Don't do anything else stupid.

Tears are instant pain, strains get more gradually worse.

Maybe he owns one? Maybe just a preferred guest?
