      I know I'm not the only one. But really, pain almost daily 5 months post? Some days needing pain meds, ice packs, etc. I hate it.
      I had slap tear and minor rotator cuff. PT for 12 weeks.
      I know shoulders take a while, but according to my OS it seems 'odd" to still be hurting.

      My husband is telling me, get a second opinion...maybe something isn't right. I dont know....

      I get alot of upper shoulder pain, and also again in the bicep quite a bit.

      thoughts?

      Adhesions? Scarring? That's what I went back for at 7 months, but then it turned out to be the bone injury besides that. Will he do another MRI? Yes it is unusual. Can you get a second opinion?

      not sure what you mean by adhesions? scars as far as those i can see? ALmost none. I have an appt again with him on the 30th and may ask for another MRI (altho rotator cuff never even showed on the 1st 2 i had)

      No, adhesions and scarring from the surgery inside. It won't show up on a MRI. If the surgeon doesn't know, he/she shouldn't be adverse to having you go for a second opinion. How is your ROM? It would be impossible for anyone to guess, but no, constant pain is not usual. Good luck.

      He hasn't mentioned anything like that, so Im guessing none? ROM is pretty good...just pain almost daily, still a decent amount sleeping..
