I've had pain and nice crunching sounds in my shoulder for years, cortisone shots no longer help. Today, I finally went to an Orthopedic Surgeon and was told that I will probably need surgery to repair my rotator cuff. Of course this is pending the MRI which should be this week to confirm the Dr's suspicions of a severe injury. Has anyone had this surgery? Any issues after the recovery time? Anything to watch out for? I don't want to have this surgery, but the pain is getting worse and I can't ignore it anymore. Thanks in advance.
