I just had rotator cuff surgery on Tuesday and was taken by surprise by intensity of the pain i am experiencing. I generally have a high pain tolerance and am used to pain as a result of various injuries and being very tall at a young age - the bones and muscles had to get stronger before they rally could support me
Reading the comments and infos from others on this board has helped me very much to figure out that this is normal! Thank you to everybody who shared their experiences about the pain
i'll continue with the analgesics as long as necessary, keep icing, and keep my arm in the sling aside from the pendulum excercises my surgen suggested.
