Re: Struggling with Acute Pain 3 1/2 Monthss After Rotator Cuff Surgery

Regarding a frozen shoulder and being too old at 69 to get one. This is noy completely true. My grandmother at the age of 79 developed a frozen shoulder and was given prednisone (a steroid) for it. I also have a friend who developed a frozen shoulder before he was 44 and co-worker got it when she was in her 50's... Although you are correct that a frozen shoulder can last up to 2 years, this is not always the case either. My grandmother and the others I mentioned regained full use of their arm, after treatment and therapy well within a year.
