    Recovery when both done at the same time will take longer for recovery.
    What exactly did you have done. How bad were the tears? I honestly didn't realize mine was as bad as it was.
    Also, i was told because of the extensive wait before having my surgery that played a major role in recovery and healing. So where are you at in therapy as of now?

    First 2 tendons In the front completely torn 3rd partially luckily the surgeon was able to cut of damaged tissue and stretched it back without having to add cadaver collagen thank god. Bicep tendon was tattered so he cut and attached it to the bone. Almost 10 weeks post OP, physical therapist since week 6 has me doing passive stretching and this last week he added 2 new non passive movements. He says based on weekly measurements that I'm making slow and steady progress which he says is preferred. I go back to see the surgeon in 3 weeks or so.

    Where are you at and are you having any complications?

    Just take you time. Slow and steady.
    Stretch and follow there directions.
    It will take some time. The hardest part for me was patients and sleeping. Sleeping sitting up for 3 months sucked. As long as you have a good support system in place. Spouse etc.. It really helps.
    Was it your dominant arm/hand.?

    Yes it was my dominant hand/arm. I have got pretty good using the left but now being out of the sling I can at least use the right for some basic stuff eating, cooking, writing etc.

    Lucky for me I just started sleeping laying down last couple weeks. Before that I used a wedge with a neck doughnut and that was decent, I guess anything is better than the first month with not much sleep.

    Oh shit. Sounds like your on your way then.
    Id have to go back and check how long i was in that dam sling and immobilizer but it was horrible..
    Ive been doing light flyes/pec deck exercises recently. Also some dips using a desk.
    These were some of my favorite exercises.
    Dips i cant go as deep. But its ok for now.
    It's not really that i cant, but at a certain point a feel a lot more pressure on the front of my shoulder where they did the anchor. So im playing it safe til i see my surgeon in october!
    My overall range of motion has improved more.
    The only thing im using right now is PSL TEST E for my trt. (Until i get a new dr in my area)
    Also if you have low test. This will affect recovery/healing. I am so glad i was able to have everything tested and actually be prescribed trt. It has helped tremendously.

    Ok so today im at the orthos waiting to be seen. Believe this is my last visit. After this hoping to be given the clear to begin pushing myself without to many restrictions/restraints. Then i will begin my process with my lawyer and getting paid for 5months out of work. Cross your fingers.
    Then a real log will begin.

    Ive been fully released.
    Just about 8 months.
    No my range of motion is not 100%. Somethings are Very close to 100%, other things are about 70-80% rom.
    I ve been cleared to hit the gym full throttle.
    She was pretty surprised at my strength due to the magnitude of my surgery.
    Sleeping sucks. Cannot go to sleep with my arm in an upward position other wise i will wake up and it feels like my trap and neck are pinched or locked up. I usually end up having a headache..
    Now can begin to do dips, shrugs, pulldowns, and bench.. Just need to do a 5-6 minute warm up for my shoulder/rotator before hand..

    Just an update... Its been a Long journey. Ive had to wait on doing anything to make sure it isnt used against me in court.
    Ive been given a 45%disability rating. Now i have another dr app with the insurance company for their rating jan 6th.. Of course they will try and lower the rating.. After this i have court in February..
    Once im done seeing their dr in January i will begin my return.. Until then i dont wanna do anything to jeopardize my case....
