Is it painful?: Not every documented rotator cuff tear is painful so surgery may not be indicated. Has a conservative approach been tried e.g. Rehab for two or more months? You are basically describing one tear. Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon your options.

Skip a day: Better to skip a day to let it recover. Exercise another group.
