Aggressive pt after Rotar Cuff surgery!
Hi, I have had my pt 5 days after surgery and it has been only a passive therapy orderded by my dr. I had a tear, a spur, the base of my collar bone was shaved and I had repairs in my bicep. After 8 weeks of surgery which the period I’m in right now, my dr gave me script for aggressive therapy which I started doing 2 days ago. Man, that was torture and I was in tears. it was so painful. Does that get better as you go through it or what? Any advice how to deal with it? I take my pain med an hour before I go for pt but I don’t feel much relief. I dread going now. I’m a tennis player and I just got to get full range of my movements which I don’t have much of it right now. My surgeon says if I’m still stiff when he sees me next in 4 month, he’ll have to do another surgery. I was in shock and didn’t discuss anything about that possibility. Does any one knows what that would be? is it like to manipulate the shoulder to get full movements? or what? and will that work? is it painful? I’m trying to think positive and that my therapy will go well and I wont have to go through any more agony.. Please help.. Thanks
