Full Supraspinatus Tendon Tear Help
My girlfriend has a full supraspinatus tendon tear in her left shoulder according to the MRI report we got from the hospital. We haven't been to see the surgery to make sure of everything as I know on the report sometimes they miss things, so we will see what the surgeon says in 2 weeks to see if the report is accurate. If it is accurate and it is a full tear what is recover like? I have had mine partially torn but never fully so I ma not sure how much things are different with a full tear. I was in a sling for 4-6 weeks, did therapy for 4 months or so and things like that. How long are you in a sling with a full tear and anything else you can tell me that may help her out?
