recently had a 2nd operation for the same condition of my right shoulder. 1st time was diagnosed as a full & partial thickness tear. never had ONE pain free day for approx.
a year & a half. 2nd time was approx. 6wks. ago & I'm loving no pain as well as rapid
healing. even though latest diagnosis (mri) prior to surgery showed a new tear it
appears the only thing needed to be done was the reattachment of my deltoid muscle.
I had a huge divot (u-shaped hole) in my shoulder from 1st surgery & now its gone.
my shoulder is now round & smooth ,normal looking. did the 1st dr. somehow not
attach my deltoid muscle back in its proper place ?
