Help need tips for post op rotator cuff surgery ..4 days away

Please help me with any tips to make things better for me post=operatively. What should I expect discomfort wise and what will my limitations be. It is my left shoulder and I am right handed, if that matters. Your answers would be greatly appreciated. thank you

rotator cuff surgery. The open cut.....not the arthroscopic type.

Re: Help need tips for post op rotator cuff surgery ..4 days away

I had arthoscopic in March and I'm still recuperating but the doc says my case was more unusual. Still, it does take a long time to heal and return ROM. But you'll definitely need a rest period before starting PT. Don't rush it! The shoulder has lots of different moving parts and is one of the most difficult areas to fix.

How long does the pain bother you after the surgery?
