      I was given no exercise protocol at all. Other than take the arm out of the sling and move the arm at the elbow to keep mobility there. Doc said no lifting the arm or pulling it back - nothing in those directions. Of course, I wouldn't even entertain the thought!

      However, I am 3.5 weeks post op, doing much, being extremely mindful of what not to do. I cook, clean, apply makeup, etc., with the dominant arm that had the repair. Of course, I'm not lifting it away from my body much. And am careful not to lift anything with that arm.

      But the arm is getting quite a bit of use in normal day to day functions. And it feels better each and every day.
