Re: any ever torn a rotater cuff?
My dad tore his rotator cuff like 4-5 years ago, he waited a while until he got it looked at and had surgery on it. He says every now and then it still bothers him, but this could have been due to him not getting the surgery done for so long (he waited like several months.)
My grandmother also tore her rotator cuff around a year ago, but she got it fixed right away and everything. As far as I know she hasn't had any problems.
