5 months post op, pain almost daily still...slap and rotator cuff tear.
I had shoulder surgery 5 months ago. Went in to have a slap tear repaired, and also discovered small rotator cuff tear (didn't show on mri) so he fixed that too.
Went 12 weeks of PT.
I am STILL IN PAIN!! It seems more now than I was 2-3 months after. I can honestly say i do not go a full 24 hours without feeling my shoulder.
Last dr appt, he kind of was like well, you ahve to go easy, blah blah...
but really? Should I still be in pain now? I HATE pain pills and only take when I absolutely have to. I have an appt in 2 weeks ago..but almost wondering if I should call earlier.
At this point...an MRI may show nothing..then...what do I do?

I did PT for 12 weeks, whcih they said was the norm. Plus all my insurance would pay for. I do still do slight things at home, but at this point wasn't advised to follow much of a routine with it.
i am just so tired of hurting during the day, having it wake me up a few times a night...frustrating
