Arthroscopic surgery pain still?
Hello I had Arthroscopic shoulder surgery on my right shoulder 2 weeks 3 days ago. My Dr informed me he found some bursitis/calcification under my bicep he scraped away.Also he said that my bicep muscle which should be attached to the bone and socket is not. Apparently the muscle is pulled away from the joint leaving this decent sized void between the shoulder joint and muscle. I am currently in physical therapy and taking pain meds at night. But my level of pain is not improving which concerns me. From what I have read and am to understand the pain should be managed with just ibuprofen. It is a sharp constant pain daily worse at night. I had no tears repaired nothing to pull back apart. So I don't understand why the pain is still so nagging! Is this normal or could I have reinjured the shoulder due to it's delicate state directly following surgery. I really want some relief I'm growing very tired of this discomfort and I can't stay on pain meds forever.
