Well my right shoulder has got a bone spur in it. Been bothering me for most of the year.. Fingers going numb and knee buckling pain when it catches.. So getting it taken off in the morning. Surgeon thinks no damage to surrounding tissue so recovery might be as little as 2-4 weeks. IF he finds damage it goes to 2-4 months. So might not be any late season muzzle loader for me Dec 11- 19.

Good luck. Shoulders can take a while to heal. Hope all goes well for you.

Do the pt exercises they give you. Good luck.

I hope all goes well. I had shoulder surgery in March. I suggest a cold machine
Its a cooler with pump that you fill partway with water. I had 6 frozen water bottles in it. Theres tubes that go to a cuff around your shoulder. Theres a timer. I set it for 20 minutes on and 20 off.
Took the pain out. Never needed pills. There about $250.00 but worth weight in gold.
Good luck.

FOLLOW DOCS ORDER TO THE LETTER!!
With that in all caps it means itís important. I had shoulder surgery many years agoÖtorn labrum, ripped bicep, etc. That arm/shoulder now makes me realize how bad of shape my other shoulder is in, lol.
I was in a sling for 8 weeks before I even started PT. I picked a PT I went to school with and dated her older sister. Younger sister, my PT, was even better looking. Apparently somewhere along the way I had unknowingly ticked little sister off!! I would leave PT in a pile of sweat and sometimes tears. She claimed she was harder on me because she liked me, lol!!
My son had shoulder surgery a few years ago and like you, started PT the very next day. His was a chair that was delivered and programmed prior to surgery. He would sit in the chair, lay his arm in the slot for his arm, hit a button and the machine would raise his arm for a predetermined range of motion. By week 8 when I was just coming out of a sling, this machine was raising his arm above his head already, lol.
Good luck and reread the first sentence and you be back normal in no time.

Probably have to carry your purse over the other shoulder for awhile.

I have had four rotator cuff surgeries, all full-thickness tears. It hurts, it requires PT, and it will get better.

A over the counter nylon sling is more comfortable than the bulky expensive slings you come out of surgery with. In a few days, consider these,

Sleep in a recliner with a pillow behind the bad shoulder. Do this for three weeks.

Avoid any situation where you might trip or fall. A fall is your worst enemy.

Save your pain pills for PT sessions.

I've had 5 shoulder surgeries. Only 1 was rotator cuff problem. All others were tears.

The quickest I went back to work was 6 months. Therapy 2-3 times a week. Arm in a sling for 6 weeks.

I'd hope for what your doc says is right. BUT???

I hope it goes well for you, even if you do have an abysmal taste in college football.

A year ago, I had rotator cuff surgery for a tear, but also had a bone spur. Like others said, do what the doctor orders and do all PT. Don't skimp on the PT. Can't emphasize that enough.
