Rotator Cuff Surgery: This is variable from person to person. Respect your levels of pain and follow the instructions of your orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist.

Variable: Some patients have complete relief immediately but this would be the minority. Most people are fairly uncomfortable for 2-4 weeks. By 6 weeks the pain should be less and even by 3 months, some people characterize the pain as a dull tooth ache with tightness.
