Re: frozen shoulder=surgery to cut bicep? shoulder surgery advice please

PT can be defined differently. Tendons do need time to heal to the bone and aggressive PT can cause re-tear. But there is a difference in "Pt the hell out of it" and gentle pendulums and assisted rom! They thought I developed frozen shoulder after the cuff tear, but it was scarring. Even now, that I cannot move my arm hardly at all (getting a reverse replacement in a month), it isn't stiff!
I do hope you get another opinion, guitarist. There is a 62 yr old runner/skier on another forum who had a simple slap repair and regrets it every day, wishing he never had surgery.
