What's up

I had a severe injury in nov 11. I fell 14 ft on to hard limestone. I will not go in to that injury however I was on crutches and a walker for extended months with 2 surgeries. I was having pain in the right shoulder that I shrugged off to being on the crutches. Here I am 6 months off of them and the pain is still there. I have seen an orthopaedist. I have had steroid and toradol shots. The doc says he thinks it is a torn rotator cuff. I had an MRI done this morning. (I went through 2 months of pt with no help). What is anyone's thoughts. I have shoulder pain that is unbearable when I lay down, it hurts most of the time which I have been dealing with but tired of never sleeping. It aches in my bicep and my elbow. It even hurts when I use my hand to apply makeup, write, or other things. I have told the doc I do not want surgery. He says we will talk after the MRI. After being down for so long already with the prior injury, I just do not want to go through the knife and the rehabilitation. Please tell me. How long, how hard....
