Hi, I had torn rotator cuff surgery in Feb. 2017. After a long and painful recovery and therapy time-line I attempted to start some normal activities, I still was limited in what I was capable of doing, especially my work out regimen, due to extent of the injury and limitation that the injured shoulder was placing on me. I finally began a somewhat normal schedule in Aug. 2017 while still favoring the injured shoulder and maintaining a home therapy schedule (insurance didn't want to cover therapy for the duration I needed). I was progressing as well as I could until Nov. 2017, when I started to experience some new pain and discomfort in the same shoulder, but this time it was across the clavicle area.This pain started to become more disabling to the point that I saw an orthopedic surgeon today, 1/12/2018. After X-rays and an exam the doctor gave me a cortisone injection in the shoulder and scheduled me for some more therapy. I can now have more therapy because it's a new year. It is now approximately 4 hrs. later and I don't experience the shoulder pain I had any more. I'll have to wait and see how long this will last, but for now I am quite pleased. The cortisone injection, for me, was not painful and it was also the second injection that I have received in this shoulder. The first injection was administered in May 2017.
