Re: Torn Rotator Cuff

I had a complete tear in the left shoulder and had to wear a sling for 6 weeks. Started therapy 3 days later. Didn't know it was going to be so painful. Have been off work since March 29th and may get to go back next week if Dr thinks I'm ready. Therapist thinks maybe not. Whats bad is I may have a tear in the right shoulder as well from about 5 yrs ago. It's really been hurting more since I had the left one fixed. Hope I can wait until I can lift my Left arm higher and it's not so sore and stiff.
