Dear Shirley,I had my surgery 12/27/10. Bone spurs & a small tear. I now have about 50% range of motion & constant pain. I had a Cortisone shot & just finished a series of Supartz ( VERY painful) shots. Still no relief. Dr. says It's arthritis. Don't know what to do now. I have more pain & less use than I did before my surgery. Started my re-hab the day after surgery & did it faithfully. HELP
I Also had rotator cuff surgery on december 22nd on Right shoulder.had a partial tear, bone spurs, osteoarthritis and they did the arthroscopy and acromioplasty, etc. Started PT. 5 days later and did it for 2.5 months then some at home. Back to work as a Hospice Nurse in 2.5 months. Now it is 4.5 months and I am worried I may have developed some "frozen shoulder". Very stiff when trying to move arm back or to side and very painful! If go past this point IM in agony for a couple minutes. Surgeon had said at last visit don't need any more appointments and if i do to come get another cortisone shot.(I've had 2 and they lasted 5-10 days tops). I feel this is a direct result of. The surgery. My range of motion was not horrible like this. I am 55 and. WAke up hurting and makes me feel ancient! Any ideas?
