HEy ladies, my hubby is going in for Arthoscopic Shoulder sugery next week to clean out scare tissue and to see if there is a possible tear and fix that. I am wondering if anyone has been through this? Can you tell me about recovery. The doc hasn't said anything, but I've heard that he won't be able to pick-up our 2 yr old for over 2 months. Any insight would be helpful! Thanks!Answer Question

Yes, when he starts feeling good because the pain is gone, don't let him lift or use that arm until the Dr has taken x-rays and given him the go ahead to use it. My sister didn't wait and paid dearly for it for the rest of her life! It's not worth it. I know it hard for us to be patient, especially if we are the working sort. But let me tell you, it will create more scar tissue and undo all the surgery that was done. Only the second time, it may not be repairable. Please have him read this. I don't want to see anyone suffer the way she did. Not all the pain medication in the world helped her. There was no relief. Don't make the same choice she did, please!!!! I hope this helps.
