Hello to Anyone Who Might Comment or Share Information:
I had rotator cuff surgery July 28th -- pretty rough stuff but lucked out with a great surgeon and an ultra-fabulous PT therapist. I'm very aware that shoulder surgery is a 'normal' 4 to 8 month process -- maybe even a year -- to get rid of all the pain................
But, the pain I'm now experiencing is stronger than several weeks ago. I worked my way thru the protocols to achieve the degrees of 180 angle when arm is straight up; 90 degrees to the right; 85 degrees to the left, etc. --- but the residual pains now are drastically awful. I have pains up in the neck, across the neck, down the backside of the arm, into the wrist with a lot of hard tingling pain. The arm was gaining strength there for awhile -- but now is losing that strength to the point I'm at a Level 4 pain even typing this.
Is anyone out there acquainted with NEUROPATHY? Is this a possible pinched or compacted nerve? I'm 69 -- and know that at my age the process of healing will take longer since my muscles are tighter than when I was younger. BUT, I'm a very active, well-exercised (still slowly jog, go to the gym 5 to 7 days a week, stay active with quilting and lots of activities, etc.). I'd love to stay in PT since I have such good help - but now the wonderment is going towards seeing a neurologist. Anyone with any suggestions or ideas -- I'd love to read what you have to say.
Wishing everyone out there a healthy, happy day.
