Re: rotator cuff

Hmmm, never heard of stiffness being a side effect of being diabetic. Once the rotator cuff tendon is torn it does not repair itself. It can only be repaired by surgery. How far can you lift your arm over your head? Can you live with that the rest of your life? After the surgery you will not, I repeat, will not be able to functionally use your arm for a few weeks if you want the surgery to be successful. I guess these are some questions you need to ask yourself and decide.
