Rotator Cuff Surgery
I've had three left shoulder surgeries. The first was to repair the supraspinatus(sp) tendon and the second was to reclean it out and tighten everything up. Everything was fine after those two surgeries for almost 2 years. Now i just had a 3rd surgery one month ago. The doctor arthoscopic with anterior capsulectomy, open rotator cuff repair with two swivel lock suture anchors foe the thickness tear, distal clavical repair, and instillation of palet rich plasma with fat graft to the rotator cuff. I know there is to be pain and discomfort after surgery, but i am getting pain as if someone is taking a knife and just digging into my shoulder which only started 4 days ago and it comes and goes. The next thing is my hand was locking up where i couldn't move it two to three times a day. As of the last two weeks it has been locking up 6 or 7 times a day. I thought the locking up would decrease and not increase. I am still in a sling and start therapy in two weeks which will be a month and a half after surgery. I'm just not sure about the knife sharp pain the locking and freezing up of the hand and fingers doing it more now then after surgery. Any suggestions or ideas?
