Re: Just had a rtc repair on 10-3-2012- many questions..
There are so many variables that it is difficult to say. Your age, your occupation, your health, how long the tear was there, how it was repaired. It is a long recovery, though. Two weeks is just beginning for healing. It can take up to 6 months to get back to a semblance of normal. It is a very long process and requires a lot of patience. Good luck - this is what forums are for - support and venting. No one understands like those who have been through this. That being said, I've had 5 surgeries since 11/09, starting with complete full tear and ending (so far, anyway, not near the end) with a revision (second) shoulder replacement.
