Torn Rotator Cuff Sugery

Had sugery for a complete tear 12 weeks ago in left shoulder. Go to therapy twice a week. Still very painful when PT is streching arm above shoulder level. Have to go back to work in about a week and without limatations. Work for a major discount store and have to do lifting and filling shelves many above shoulder level.Problem is , right shoulder is hurting as well. Think I have a tear in it too. How soon do I need to wait to have it checked out ?
