tendon tear in shoulder, what to do?

i have been suffering from horrible pain in my shoulder for over 4 months now. i have a constant ache in it, and i wake up several times a night with screaming pain, its horrible.

i dont have health insurance, but go to a free clinic for the working uninsured, so things have been moving a little slow.

i finally had an mri which showed a tear in the tendon. the exact words in the reprt are: there's a large partial full thickness tear of the distal supraspinatus tendon with a moderate degree of fluid extending into thhe subacromial-subdeltoid bursa.

im waiting to see an orthopedic specialist, but am very curious as to what they might do? i am tired of suffering, it really stinks...
