6 months post slap/rotator cuff repair..and ANOTHER tear!

So i am almost 7 months post from slap and rotator cuff repair. Ive been dealing with pain since. FINALLY on a med that is working...cymbalta of all things. But I still went in for an MRI just to see what the issue was (was hoping nothing)
Well i just got back from the OS and there is another rotator cuff tear!! Its almost partial thickness..but OMG! He isn't sure if its the same spot or not.

Now due to insurance reasons, IF I want to get it fixed, I would have to do it this saturday!! OMG. do i want to do this again? If I wait, what if im just "chipping away" at it day by day and it gets worse. I am so not sure what to do!?

Amyinnc,
so sorry to hear you need another RC repair. I know exactly how you feel I had RC surgery in Feb 2011 and also need to go through it again. Just thinking of the post op pain and rehab you go through with this surgery is overwhelming in itself. I know your in a time crunch insurance wise sometimes drs will give you an appt within 48hrs for a second opinion if your scheduled for surgery you might want to try that if your unsure.

Keep us posted
