3 months ago I had shoulder surgery for bursitis and bone spurs after PT made it worse and another doc did an MRI. Doc didn't stay around to tell me what he did. At first appointment he said he did bursectomy, debrided biceps, acromioplasty. Pain was awful. I tried everything. No PT, because he said not to do anything but a couple exercises at home.
2 months - pain still terrible, couldn't sleep, tried taking several sleep meds. Nothing stopped pain on slightest movement. Joint crunching, grinding, tendon pain triggering biceps spasms, pain clear down to hand. Cortisone shot second appointment helped 3 days. Doc said he trimmed a labrum tear and rotator cuff. Called over and over to get new appointment.
Now 3 months of pain; putting on clothes is still agony. Doc said the rotator cuff was irrepairable. Was I supposed to know this from "trimming" it? He didn't mention the labrum. I got a cortisone shot in the biceps and am being sent to PT next week.
I'm not getting better. Can I get a second opinion for treatment after surgery? I expect PT is going to be unbearable.
