Hi all, I am now almost 6 weeks since surgery to repair my rotator cuff and a decomposition.
I know this is a long process but should I be concerned having seen my surgeon two weeks ago he informed me that I will not be driving or returning to work "any time soon". Two days later my physio told me I have to stay in the sling only taking it off for upto half and hour when I am sitting down and can support my arm on a cushion. I return to surgeon the end of November 😱 and next physio is mid October 🤦♀️
Beside all this my pain seemed to subside slightly but has now increased to the point of my increasing my pain killers by double the dose (gp advised).
Is this to be expected and any advice about who long I may be looking at being off work?
