A year after rotator cuff surgery (full tear & now 3 anchors). I started working out w/trainer & I am having shoulder pain (in back of shoulder) Should?
Secondary. Much of rotator cuff pain is secondary to scapular dysfunction and the failure rate of rotator cuff surgery is as high as 70%. Watch the YouTube video if you have time: https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=0o90YoI1o7w.
Depends. On the location. See a second or third orthopedist and have that evaluated.
It depends. The shoulder has many moving parts. If the metal is contained in the bone or is sequestered in fibrotic scar tissue, then it shouldn't be a problem. If its in the joint or a tendon sheath, it could be a source of pain and irritation.
Rest. A rotator cuff repair takes the torn end of the rotator cuff tendon and reattaches it to the bone with anchors and or sutures. The repair takes from 30 minutes to 2 hours. A period of rest after the surgery allows the tendon end to heal back to the bone. This can take between 6-12 weeks. Typically, you are given some rest, followed by gentle exercises for motion and strength.
