Hey, names Tim. I wrote a diary on my highs in lows with this terrible shoulder pain. That ended up being a tear. "Im a ex-football player so you know I had to beat this thing without surgery..."

.....Long story short I did. Here's how? My Diary

  • I am not a doctor.I tore my rotator cuff. The MRI showed that, with exercise I could regain my mobility and strength. Indeed, with exercise I was able to do more and more, like hanging up the laundry, with a little help still with the other arm, clipping bushes, difficult, but maybe with time.....I am a passionate tennis player and said I want the surgery to fix it good, since this was the arm I played with.The surgery showed a much bigger injury than the MRI. It took me 6 months to the first tennis game and pretty soon that shoulder was better than before the injury- the injury was not tennis related but I suspect I had had some micro tears in that shoulder because I had trouble at times i.e. after vigorous cleaning of bath room tiles.My advice: go for it. For me it was very much worth it.
