Revision Cuff Repair: Attempting a 2nd revision has a low likelihood of working. If you're having significant pain, weakness and limited range of motion - you may want to discuss superior capsular reconstruction or reverse total shoulder arthroplasty with your orthopedic surgeon.
If your symptoms aren't that debilitating - may want to try non-op - PT, injections, etc. ...Read more

This: This is a tough question to answer without more information. How small is "small"? Where is the blister located? Are you wearing a prosthesis? How long has it been since you first saw the blister? How were you able to determine that you have good circulation?

If you are able to provide more information, myself and other physicians may be able to advise you more appropriately. ...Read more
