Rotator cuff repair.

I injured my shoulder in May where I fractured the numerous and tore a biceps tendon. I just had surgery on Dec. 31. They manipulated my arm to break up scar tissue, removed bone chips, and repaired my rotatory cuff tear. They also scraped the bone to smooth off some arthritis damage. I was given exercises to do, and have started passive OT. I m not suppose to use that arm otherwise and have to keep it in a sling all the time. I still have a lot of pain and am wondering if anyone can share their experiences with this type of surgery.
