Re: having surgery on the 26th, i'm a little scared
I had the same shoulder surgery a few years ago. After the first couple days, I was actually in much less pain than I was prior to surgery. The shaving of the bone and "clean up" of the shoulder is pretty easy to heal from. It takes longer to heal when something is being fixed up. I started PT a couple days after my surgery. Within a couple months, I'd regained all of the ROM that I'd lost prior to surgery.
By the way, the procedure is called a subacromial decompression.
Wishing you both well with your surgeries.
